Hungarian Sentences - Reading And Writing

Below Tünde and I have composed some basic sentences relating to reading and writing. Sentences that everyday Hungarian speak, but at the same time sentences you will not normally find in Hungarian apps, language books and so on; simply because they do not cater for the language learner who actually wants to speak everyday Hungarian.

I have added syllable notes, but purposely not added speech simply because these type of sentences are for those already immersed in learning basic Hungarian, who want to learn more everyday sentences; perhaps because they have a Hungarian partner and/or speak with Hungarians on a daily/weekly basis. There is also no speech because you should have already heard (learnt) enough Hungarian pronunciation to know how Hungarian words are pronounced (split into syllable) in general.
