That would certainly work better than trying to go directly from English to 
Sanskrit. For one thing, the vocabulary would be 80-90% there and you can 
spend your effort better in getting the cases and tenses right in Sanskrit. 
Another advantage would be that the syntax and word order will also be 
almost the same, unlike in English.

Personally, I think the biggest obstacle to overcome is to let go of one's 
inhibitions in trying to speak. The sentences need not be too long and it is 
okay to make mistakes; they will serve as a good learning experience.
