The Chinese "q" sound doesn't sound like the English one at all, it sounds something like a mix of "t" and "sh". You may take a look at this video lesson for more details.
Here is the Pinyin Chart which shows you all the combinations of vowels and consonants, plus the tones.
Hope it helps, let us know if you have any questions.
It seems every word having a 'q' sounds like 'tch' instead of 'kw'. And if every word could have it's distinct meaning when tapped on since the Chinese English grammar will disarrange words into different order.
