Where to go to learn Chinese Mandarin in Shanghai?

For a person who has no knowledge of Chinese, who is willing to spend 6 months to a year in Shanghai, to eat and breath Chinese. Looking for a established language school, hopefully one that provides room and board.
Thanks for the answers, I am now leaning towards going to a university (6 months to a year), enroll in some kind of Chinese immersion program, and finding my own place to live through Craigslist.

Any suggestion as to which university I should check?
