Q: How do you say this in English (US)? shut and shot ?
A: To produce the uh sound for shut you'll need to drop your jaw about 3/4 as far as it will comfortably go and keep your lips relaxed, if not a little bit spread.

To produce the ah for shot, you'll drop your jaw completely, as far as is comfortable, and bring your lips in on the edges to make your mouth tall and slim.

For both, you'll need a sh sound, which you'll make by keeping your tongue tense and behind your teeth. Your lips will be tense as well, but parted, as you blow air between your tongue and the top of your mouth, then between your teeth, then through your lips. As the air goes through, you'll start to drop your jaw and vibrate your vocal chords.

At the end of both words, you'll have a very sharp T. Unlike the Spanish T, you only use the very tip of your tongue. So the tip of your tongue will be moving upwards as you close your mouth to finish the vowels, and the rest will lay flat on the bottom of your mouth. It will hit just behind your front teeth.
