Question about English (US)

When you see a small tsu(っ) in a word, don't read it.
Small tsu has no sound.
When you read a small tsu, you must pause for one beat.
We write it in romaji by doubling the first consonant of syllable which follows the small tsu.
For example : shoulder 肩 かた kata
bought 買った かった katta 
       fished  釣った つった tsutta
           'large tsu' 'small tsu'
does this sound natural?
