Hungarian Sentences - Telling The Time

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.

The Time

With the Quarter Past, Half Past and Quarter To time periods you just change the Hour in my One O'Clock examples to the hour you want. Example: Negyed Kettő is Quarter Past One O'Clock (The coming hour is two (Kettő), therefore the first hour has past), so Quarter Past Five is Negyed Hat, because the coming hour is six (Hat) and therefore the fifth hour has past.
