An i after x is "ee" as in "sheet". An i after sh is more like "ı" as in "shirt". (American/Canadian dialect with r pronounced.)
Neither the x nor the sh consonants exist in English, but you can approximate them thusly... Start with the normal English sh as in sheet. For x, stretch the corners of your mouth outwards like the Joker, or like you're already pronouncing a vowel "ee." For sh, curl the tip of your tongue backwards like you're already saying the "ir" in shirt.
To really understand, you'll have to study the phonetic physiology of the mouth. Best wishes on your journey!
