    Here is a pronunciation dictionary. To hear the different "i" sounds, try alternating between "ship" and "sheep" and see if you can detect the difference.

    he above gives British pronunciation but I am sure if you search online for pronunciation dictionary you will be able to find an AE one.

    Wordreference itself allows you to compare US and UK accents by clicking on the loudspeaker symbol. It takes too long on Wordreference to swap between ship and sheep to hear the difference.

    You will notice a considerable difference between US and UK pronuciation of "ship" for example.

    To get the schwa sound, here is a tip. Relax completely, relax your tongue, relax your cheeks, allow your mouth to fall open only slightly as though you had fallen asleep in your chair.

    Now vocalise. This produces the schwa sound!

    well in fact it's important for me to notice the different sounds between American and british English :)

    I wouldn't like to mix them:thumbsup:
