I traveled to Beijing after just a little over 5 months of studying on Yoyo Chinese. I was able to hold actual conversations there without having to gesture or use any English. Basic conversational fluency absolutely can be taught in 6 months.

about yoyo chinese
After 2 years of self study using a variety of websites, CD's and books, Yoyo Chinese is the ONLY way to study Chinese where I feel I've actually learnt something from each lesson and still remember it days later.
To say Yoyo Chinese is amazing would be an understatement. You made one of the most difficult languages in the world appear so easy to learn.
I have been a student of Yoyo Chinese for 18 months. I would recommend its program to anyone seriously wanting to learn Mandarin both quickly and correctly, correctly being the key.
The Yoyo Chinese programs make up for not having a Chinese community nearby to deepen conversational skills.
