The speech accent archive, but different?

The speech accent archive contains samples of people from all different sorts of dialects and backgrounds reading the same English paragraph. That's awesome, but not what I want.

What I'm looking for is an archive of samples of people who don't speak English natively saying something in their own words. Something that I could listen to for grammatical errors, rather than accent.

Sound samples would be best but transcriptions are also useful, provided they're done by people who are accurate.

Does anyone know of such a thing? It seems like people who study second language acquisition would have a use for it.
