Do you have any experience with the Liahona?

I've been trying to learn German, and trying to find low-level reading has
been difficult.

I've also been trying to find listening materials and hadn't considered

For those of you who, like me, like to listen frequently to natlang
audio you may want to check out:,18374,5186-1,00.html

OK, so it's religious (Mormon), but the selection of languages is
quite nice:

Bulgarian, Cambodian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English,
Finnish, French, German, Greek, Haitian, Hmong, Hungarian,
Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Kiribati, Korean, Laotian, Mongolian,
Navajo, Norwegian, Polish, Portugese, Romanian, Russian, Samoan,
Spanish, Swedish, Tagalog, Tahitian, Thai, Tongan, Ukranian,

The languages are voiced over, with the English version very quiet
in the background. In streaming Real Audio (16k--so even dial-up
connections will work :) ) and MP3 (32k--so the 2 hour meetings
fit into about 28 MB).

Hopefully this doesn't violate the no cross/no crown rule (I present
this as a linguistic resource, I'm not proselytizing), and is useful to
some of you.
