I've got a few months. How can I learn the most possible Swahili in this time?

I'm making a trip to Eastern Africa in September, and because I want to make the most of my time there and possibly work as a volunteer for some time during my stay, I'd like to learn a little Swahili.
I know I could probably get by with English, but I've got time on my hands and think I could get more out of the trip if I at least try at the language.
I have a recommendation for a intensive 3 week course in Zanzibar. I'll probably buy a book or two off amazon. Willing to try rosetta stone or whatever web resource I could get for free. But if anyone had a plan they used or specific recommendations for web resources, media to consume, et cetera. Also if anyone wants to share their experiences here, what they had trouble with, what they found encouraging, et cetera, I'd love to hear about it.
