Hi Mike

what about the speeches collected at InterSpeech 1993 in Berlin, Called 
TED, The Translanguage English Database
This is
"a corpus of recordings made of oral presentations at Eurospeech'93 in 
Berlin. The corpus name derives from the high percentage of oral 
presentations given in English by non-native speakers of English. Two 
hundred twenty-four (224) oral presentations at the conference were 
successfully recorded, providing a total of about 75 hours of speech 
material. These recordings provide a large number of presenters, 
speaking multiple variants of English, over a relatively large amount of 
time (15 minutes for each presentation + 5 minutes of discussion), on a 
specific topic.

see details at: http://catalog.elra.info/product_info.php?products_id=637

all the best

P.S. You may want to look at the romance languages corpus C-Oral-Rom
C-ORAL-ROM - Integrated reference corpora for spoken romance languages. 
Multi-media edition; tools of analysis; standard linguistic measurements 
for validation in HLT
