... speak slowly and ask the question you want and you will find many people understand ...

Sure. That's the way it is for most of us. As I said, I vaguely remember a little bit of French from college. It's very difficult for me to speak it but I can understand it so-so if someone is speaking slowly and taking care to choose easy vocabulary. And reading it, to skim for the words I recognize and guess at the gist, is easier still.
