How to learn Vietnamese with movies?

Before you start clicking that "play" button, I have two learning tips for you so that you can learn with movies more effectively.

First, you should only start learning Vietnamese with movies when you reach at least the high-beginner level.

Second, choose a movie that you can understand 70% of if. A learning material that is right for you is the one just above your current level. Else, you are just going to feel frustrated and lose the interest to learn.

Lucky for you, most of the movies on my list are short. So if You are a beginner, you can try playing the movie one time, copy down key vocabulary words that you don't understand, and check the dictionary. Then watch the movie again with Vietnamese subtitles and use the vocabulary list to help you understand the movie better.

So here are your free Vietnamese movies list with subtitles!
