Free Russian Films with English Subs

Whether you call them films or movies

Check out an impressive compilation of Russian films with English subtitles on YouTube.

Perhaps it's up to quality of content

Some of the films in the list have been removed for a variety of reasons, but there are still lots there to work with.

Ways to use films for language learning

Queue up a film you want to see and listen closely to the Russian being spoken. Beginner and intermediate learners may wish to read along in English. Advanced and functionally fluent learners: stop looking at those subtitles unless you hit something you don't know!

Stop the film any time when you come across some language byte that interests you. You can rewind and play again for many reasons, for example listening comprehension and accent improvement (if you speak back after the actors).

You can use films as a means to gain exposure to Russian language and culture.

Teachers create collective context, take a break

Well, you don't actually have to take a break but if you need one, this is a great way.

You can also use these films as a launching point for discussion and plan lessons around the content.
