Level T - The Schwa

Here you will find our selection of printable seventh grade books.
In this level we will focus on The Schwa.

Even though it’s not really supposed to be in the English language, it’s still there.
The Schwa makes the quick uh sound.

You can hear the schwa in the first syllable of cadet and the second syllable of bridal.
instead of making the short or long a sound, you say the a quickly so that is sounds like uh, or the short u sound.
If you pronounce each syllable in a multi syllable word formally and distinctly, people may think you don’t really understand how to pronounce these words.

The schwa, or uh sound, prevents you from sliding sounds together too quickly.
