I.D.E.A: spoken English from around the world

I came me across this site by pure accident. But it's been a while since I found anything nearly as valuable and interesting on the World Wide Web.
International Dialects of English Archive stores audio clips of English as spoken not only by native speakers of various dialectical groups from English-speaking countries but also samples of 'accented English' by non-native speakers.
I always wanted to find something like that. While I am obviously familiar with British or Australian Enlgish, Pennsylvanian English or New Jersey drawl have been a mistery to me, up until now.
Check it out!
