Project: Kiswahili

After some busy weeks I think I'll have more time now and it's high time to sit down and concentrate on Swahili. I have a plan which I call "Project Kiswahili" - to be able to communicate at least at intermediate level in a year.
As with any other languages I've learned so far, I don't use only one resource. I'd rather use several books. After a short time I try to listen to the radio or watch TV news, not mentioning my attempts to read short articles from the newspapers.
Following is a short list of resources I am using now:

Colloquial Swahili
