Shorts with English subtitles

Postby Chung » Wed Jun 09, 2021 6:11 pm

I just stumbled on an entertaining Hungarian short on YouTube titled "Sing" (original: Mindenki "Everyone"). For my studies, it's almost perfect because despite the hard-coded English subtitles, all of the dialogue is transcribed via proper Hungarian subtitles that I can toggle (in addition to translations into FIGS and Portuguese) and these cover up the hard-coded ones.

This video comes from the YouTube channel of KIS - "Keep it Short" which contains about 150 shorts from around the world. For all of the videos that do not have speech in English, they include hard-coded English subtitles. It's a small shame that these subtitles can't be removed but beggars can't be choosers.

Even though I've gone through the channel and listed the shorts with speech in other languages, I've probably missed a few. Maybe some of you who can learn even better than I can with movies subtitled in English will find some of the following useful. The channel has quite a few shorts in Dutch, in addition to several in French, German or Spanish.

When I saw the title of this post, I asked myself why is Chung writing about odd-looking clothing apparel? :roll:
Anyway, good stuff. Thanks.

Thank you for this resource! I have watched two films that I thought were great (the Danish one and the Portuguese one), and I abandoned a few others after about two minutes. I plan to watch more.

I really appreciate the way that you organized them by language. Your list is much easier to sort through than the YouTube channel.
