    Smile Schwa sound pronunciation

    Hi people, what's up!

    I'm new in the forum, i'm sebastian, from Medellin, Colombia, 17 years old... and i'm very interested in languages learning!

    Actually i'm studying english language in autodidact way.

    I really love it!... but, it isn't the matter.

    So, i wanna know if the Schwa sounds equal in all words that contain it, i say, supply, support, apartment, the (weak form), and so on.

    It's a sound that really is gettin' me crazy but i'll get it

    And that's all, thanks in advance, and sorry for dorky mistakes, i'm learning!

    Greetings from Colombia!!

    Hello,
    Yes, schwa sounds the same in all those words, and pretty much the same everywhere.
    You will progress better if you try to use proper English - it's expected here. I'm not referring to mistakes - everyone makes them. You need to capitalise 'I', 'English', etc.
    /wanna/, if you've decided to pronounce it this way, is still written "want to". /gettin'/ is written "getting" in proper English.
    You'll see all sorts of weird inventions on the 'net. Only some of them are English.
