PROGRESO DE LA LECCIÓN
0% Completado

Goal

Let ‘s learn how to pronounce the most common sound in English: /ə/. Listen and repeat the words as many times as you wish. Try to memorize them.

When you have finished, go to Step2.


/ə

Here is a new vowel sound: /ə/

  • Separate your lips so that they are not touching each other
  • Relax your mouth and tongue
  • Make a short sound

The /ə/ is never in a stressed syllable of a word. It is a weak sound. You can find the Schwa sound in almost any sentence and in words as different as the following ones:

BAC(O)N

CAM(E)L

PRESID(E)NT

WEATH(ER)

(A)GAIN

PLEAS(A)NT

CAM(E)R(A)

B(A)NAN(A)

HUSB(A)ND

(A)BOUT

Conclusion

Have you finished? Let’s go to step 3!
