That dating game is actually pretty good for listening practice, and I like it that they have the subtitles underneath, so you can confirm you are undersanding correctly and can look up words you dont know. Newer chinese movies have chinese and english subtitles, which can be helpful.

As regards to going to Chinese Uni, I felt it was useful. I hear from others that sichuan uni methods are pretty poor, lots of focus on hand writing (Pretty, but useless) and learning characters, but slight neglect on listening and speaking. I went to xi nan cai da, and although not without its faults, I would recommend it.

Immersion – useless in sichuan.
