    Question What is "schwa" ?

    Hi dear teachers!
    I want you to help me with the "schwa". If you can send me a clear explanation of what the schwa is and examples of it, I will be very happy. I know it is an unstressed vowel, but I can't explain it to my students. How do you show it to your students? Thanks for your help.
