Phonetic alphabet for communicating with non-native English-speakers

I'm finding the NATO phonetic alphabet is confusing when I speak with with people who are not native English speakers over the phone (e.g. they don't recognize the words alpha, bravo, charlie, delta, etc). I trying to find an phonetic alphabet made up of words that non-native English speakers would have learned while learning English--maybe something like apple, boy, cat, dog, etc. I could take a guess at making one, but it would be nice if there was a standard?
