I educate my Japanese who works with offshore team using simple Japanese,
speaking directly and slowly, like this:

No matter what how good is a non-native skeaking member is,
I don't think s/he can understand 100% what Japanese speaks.

By implementing written Q&A, Internet meeting with Polycom/Skype and
face to face meetings,

Skeaking of my experience, well wirtten Question and Anwer[1] and well
written document
would reduce communication risks.

Written Q&A works most of the them, but if it does not, we use voice.

When it comes to face to face conversation, things get easier:
Asking questions until I know all the things I need.

By default, communication among Japanese native are very aimai and indirect,
but they will change if we ask them speaking in a direct way.
