How can I use English to communicate in Japan?

Slowly and Gently

Some Japanese people get very nervous when they are talked to in English all of a sudden with native pronunciation. Actually I am one of them. J I would be grateful if you can talk to me in English slowly and gently. That would greatly help following conversations. Japanese people usually understand basic greetings even in English, but it would be great if you can use such basic conversation to relax shy Japanese people. It would be even more great if you can teach us a couple of useful English phrases. J
