actually, this was the first time i got to hear slovenian language n i gotta say i could understand i little bit ,,its kinda similar to slovak ..just few words but still..pretty good
Rogerio Santos (1 year ago)
Pretty cool I told before that polish doesn't sound similar but it does alot and for sure also this language on this videos , of course that because I'm Brazilian all those languages to me looks like the same but paying attention I discovered really it's cool before I try to learn Ukrainian I was into Russian but I saw you videos talking about learning Ukrainian would be so much better because who learn it easily can learn other Slavic languages you're completely right ,. Just need to pay attention 😊

I only know English, but went to both L'viv and Ljubljana this October. Ukrainian was much harder for me to learn, I guess mainly because of the alphabet. Viva Україна & Slovenija!! I loved both places!

I think that in ukrainian was a phrase :please make me a coffee, but in slovenian : please come take/have a coffee with me
garniak (2 years ago)
Hi I am from Poland. From what you say I usually understand the general meaning in both languages. However in Ukrainian I usually got closer to the real meaning. But If I add up together from both of you I got almost correct translations.

Not everything that is said in Ukranian is translated the same way into Slovenian. For example, the Ukranian phrase "Please make me some coffee' is translated into Slovenian as 'prosim pojdi na kavo z mano' - please come have coffee with me, which is not the same thing.
Matic Jelovcan (8 months ago)
not just that, but in slovene we use two concepts for love: "rad imam" and "ljubim". The former is akin to "I like" and the latter is "I love, like eros". "Ljubim" is rarely used in speech because it sounds very formal in the structure, though when it is, the person really means that they love the other person (it's almost never attributed to things and animals, except perhaps in written form, where the language is formalized). So when Barbara said "Rada te imam, dragi." she was indeed correct, but she could also say "Ljubim te, dragi" which would make it a tad more mutually inteligible in this case.

Ja narobe je povedala v slovenščini. Pravilni bi bilo: "Prosim ,pripravi mi kavo"

Ukrainian and Slovenian are similar to Polish, but Ukrainian is more similar to modern Polish than Slovenian (and Slovenian is more similar to Old Polish than Ukrainian).

YummYakitori (2 years ago)
I realized "happy" in Ukrainian is very similar to Polish (Szczęśliwy) :D
YummYakitori (6 months ago)
Martin “Please” in Ukrainian is “Bud’ laska”, in this case the Slovenian word for “please” sounds closer to Polish
Martin (2 years ago)
+YummYakitori Not only that word.In this video I hear only few differences: shine (polish: świecą), stars (gwiazdy), beautiful (piękna), please (proszę).Other words are almost the same.

Slovenian is very similar to Serbian-croatian language

Finally a video comparing Ukrainian to Slovenian. Donald Trump, US Presidential candidate's wife, Melania Knauss, now Melania Trump is Slovenian. Always wanted to hear the difference. Thanks for sharing.

very interesting! I dont know that she is Slovenian ;-)

Nice video! I am Slovak and I also speak Slovenian. I was surprised how much I can understand from Ukrainian :)

thats awesome
Olga Reznikova (2 years ago)
+Petra Keckes (langwitch4fun) that's cool!
Graham Cracker (2 years ago)
Thanks Olga. I always like these videos where you compare Ukrainian to other Slavic languages. That one sentence "Happy like elephant." Is that a common expression where you live? I've never heard that one before.
Olga Reznikova (2 years ago)
yes, it's pretty common expression ;-)
David Barchus (2 years ago)
Olga has Barbara asked you for any money I gave her 40 dollars and didnt get any thanks for it I think Barbara needs a spanking
Matthew Ihle (2 years ago)
Why is it that some Slavic languages like Ukrainian, Belarusian, and Russian use the cyrillic alphabet, and other Slavic languages, like Polish for example, use the latin alphabet like English?
Janshevik (2 years ago)
but have you seen glagolitic letters? :D
Slaweniska dela (2 years ago)
it's hard to talk with people who're opssesed with sex...they somehow do not see past it and are unable for serious and intelligent converstions, which is sad really, for nation and for humanity. I hope You're not one of them. That's all I have to say.  
Janshevik (2 years ago)
+Slaweniska dela also using letters looking like dicks isn't decent :p

+Slaweniska dela Thanks for the history lesson... It's interesting how languages evolve.

now I'm not slavish but Ugric from my grandfather's side came from kattuvuoma and I can not say much because I have aft Russian friend they were nice to me
Slaweniska dela (2 years ago)
Thanks for the video ! :) Djakuju Olha! =) well... sorry for being critical but as a slavic linguist I must be... stuff there could be much more similar, Barbara has (in some cases) just used some words in slovenian instead of others which are more similar...for example ukr. kvitka = sln. cvetek (litterally)or cvet but on the other hand kohany is not dragi in slovenian, dragi is for ukr dorohi, and kohany in slovene is ljubljeni made from verb "ljubiti".... oh and while we're at comparing slavic languages...check this ukrainian song, and compare it to croatian.... /watch?v=95GSJLtMC5I it's very good translation...almost every word in ukrainan has the same root as in croatian...only endings may differ. What do You think? Judging only by that song ukr and croatian seem more like dialects than different languages...I can say I understand more ukrainian than I do some croatian dialects...I'm not even kidding or exaggerate...even though croatian (sometimes serbocroatian/croatoserbian) is along with slovenian my mother tongue...that's kind of funny.. anyways cheers! ;)

Very interesting. The two language sound the same to me as far as pronunciation, but the actual words are very different.
Cannibal (1 year ago)
ок https://ru.wiktionary.org/wiki/%D0%BF%D1%80%D0%BE%D1%81%D0%B8%D1%82%D1%8C
Olga Reznikova (2 years ago)
Well, maybe. Ukrainian language by itself is very rich. There are so many words to describe the same thing, but with different features or tones... Russian is more non-slavic. For example, there are different words in Ukrainian which mean "please". It can be "bud laska" or "proshu". In Slovenian it's kind of "prosim", in Polish " proshu", but in Russian -"pozhajlusta". So that is why Ukrainians understand other slavic languages easier than Russians.
Sandy Beach (2 years ago)
+Olga Reznikova Is it like Russian and Ukrainian where there can be two words for the same thing in both languages but one word is more common in one language and the other is more common in the other language?
Olga Reznikova (2 years ago)
inspite words are different, a lot of the make sense in Ukrainian.
Jan Majerníček (2 years ago)
I am czech and i have to say that sometimes slovenian version is more similar to czech and sometimes the ukrainian one. Btw do you have verb to be in ukrainian(russian does not)?
Christof Waltz (1 year ago)
V ukrajinštině existuje slovo být. V ukrajinštině se skloňují různé tvary slova být v závislosti od osobních zájmen ,ale ne všude . Například : Já- nepoužívají Ty- nepoužívají On je Ona je Ono je Tady je vidět rozděl ot češtiny.
jurisprudens (1 year ago)
In Russian, we use "will be"(буду) and "was" (был) a lot, but not in the present tense.
Jan Majerníček (2 years ago)
Oh. For me, as czech, senetences without tobe sometimes sound like child/frankenstein speech :D
Olga Reznikova (2 years ago)
we have, and Russians have,but we both dont use it in sentenses.

+Filip Jurgowski  Polish and Ukrainian languages are very similar. Slovak language is very close to the Polish, so that the Ukrainian and Slovak languages are very close too. I am Ukrainian, when someone speaks Polish or Slovak, I can understand many things When someone speak Slovenian, I almost did not understand
