Hey zboy, I've been to Guilin myself. Feel free to email me if you'd like to discuss this more.
By village, do you mean a township (xiang 乡) or administrative village (cun 村)? Usually, several adminstrative villages make up one township.
Guilin is a prefecture, so it contains many counties. It seems like you'll be teaching in a more remote place out in the boondocks that could have some ethnic Yao (Mien).
Guangzhou people speak alot of the local dialect of Mandarin, and the rest speak alot of Cantonese. Then there is a group of Guangzhou locals, that speak some unique kind of Chinese that is not Mandarin or Cantonese, but that is a fairly small group.
I forgot another strategy you can possibly employ. If you use online dating, it is possible to get Chinese women to come visit you since you are actually in China. I should have put this in my guide. Some women are willing to come meet you, in your city, whenever they have holiday time. I received a handful of these offers before which was surprising to say the least. Some of them have lots of extra money, air miles, I dunno, but some of them seem to not mind doing that. You would get 100 times more interest than any guy not already in China anyway. It does not need to be your only strategy, just part of THE strategy. A small place where you are going will not have any secrets among the locals. So mind how you date the local women.
