Hi, sh-- [ʃ]; zh-- [dʒ]; ch-- [tʃ]; x—[ks]; About q, I can’t say it directly in International phonetic. 球=ball, PIN YIN is qiu2 As for the below web links, my recommendation is that you’d better say Chinese words to enhance your sense about PIN YIN. For example, you could say sh-诗=poem, shi1 ; zh—蜘蛛=spider, zhi1 zhu1; ch-穿衣服=wearing clothes,chuan1 yi1 fu; x-西=west, xi1; q-球=ball, qiu2 Below is the web link of Chinese Phonetic alphabet & International phonetic. If you couldn’t open it, try this one in Chinese:
