Hungarian Words - Common Town, Village And Street Names

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

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