Videos in Ukrainian with Ukrainian subtitles is one of the most common requests from the Ukrainian learners. It is true that listening practice becomes more practical for your language learning when you also have the text at hand. That is why I have decided to collect the videos in Ukrainian with Ukrainian subtitles or transcript available on this page for you.
There are not many yet, but you can also check the Youtube channels of those videos for more similar content. If you happen to find some other interesting videos, please share in the comments below!
Some techniques for watching videos in Ukrainian with Ukrainian subtitles
- Try to watch a video without the subtitles, trying to capture the general ideas. Do not focus on the problematic words. Then, rewatch with the subtitles and translate the words that block your understanding.
- Try to watch a video by small chunks, pressing stop and play, this will give you some time to process the words.
- My personal favorite! Try to watch a video without the subtitles by small chucks writing down or saying aloud exactly what you have heard. In most of the cases, you will need to relisten the same part 2-4 times. Then, watch with the subtitles to compare.
Videos in Ukrainian with Ukrainian subtitles are not easy to find. However, you can also do the similar practice to the described above with the videos that do not have subs. Then, you might want to ask your Ukrainian friend or a tutor to help you with the problematic parts. You can try watching some great Ukrainian movies online here.
Below you can find the videos that we could find so far. If you know any other interesting videos in Ukrainian with Ukrainian subtitles, please share with us in the comments below!
