Hungarian Sentences - Asking Directions

Below Tünde and I have spoken many Hungarian sentences whereby we have purposely slowed down each word, syllable-by-syllable, so that you know how each word should be pronounced and how each sentence should be spoken as a whole; hopefully improving your learning and speaking of Hungarian.

Play each sentence twice or more, looking at its syllable notes at the same time, as the first attempt to play a sentence may be hindered by buffering; plus the fact you need to hear a syllable/word/sentence more than once anyway.
