Universal audiobook? | Resources for non-spoken aspects of the language | Forum
June 25, 2011
I'm documenting my language learning process for my own reference, greatly based on Benny's guide, and I wanted to use some "token tests" that should be available across all my languages. In text form I have the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the UN, and Le Petit Prince; both of which have been translated to just about any language I would ever want to learn.
As for an audiobook, on the other hand… no dice. Can't find one single item that fits the description. Any ideas?

I guess the Lords Prayer will be available in many languages.
I'm not christian/catholic but enjoyed listening to it in Spanish. But a small set back is that, this may be in an older form of the language.
But it's rather short to be called an "audiobook".

@rajith: Yeah, the bible is also available in just about every language one could think of. But I'm just not interested in religion. I'll still keep it mind in case I can't find anything else.
@Kevinpost: Karl Marx's book? Added to the list, at least in text form. Can't find an audiobook version in Esperanto, though.

The Bible unfortunately WILL be written in an archaic form of the language, whatever one it is. I have nothing but the English and Spanish versions to go by, though!
I for one would find it very hard to read either way, though… not very religious…
Is cainteoir dúchais Gaeilge mé. Same with English. Zacząłem uczyć się polskiego, y ahora, he dejado aprender el castellano.
