Right now, this is pretty open-ended... Why not describe your platform, your level, and the other specifics of your situation and let folks give you advice that pertains to it? – Shog9 Dec 24 '11 at 4:16

One game I suggest you check out is Enter Zon - an MMORPG specifically for learning Mandarin.

Essentially you run around in a game environment and have all sorts of dialogues about different things, with the end goal of improving your Mandarin. It's pretty neat.
