Once one becomes Muslim they should start praying even before they master saying the prayers in Arabic, there should be no delay in praying. As there is no delay in praying there is also no delay in learning how to say what needs to be said in arabic after one takes Shahada, so the prayers are done according to how Prophet Muhammad salAllahu alayhee wasallam did them. Allah is Most Merciful, so don't compromise praying (by thinking we can't pray because we don't know how to say the prayers in arabic). Do your best with salaah in the best way you know how as clost to the Sunnah as possible until you are able to master the recitation of alFatiha and what needs to be said in Arabic. Make it a priority so you can perfect your prayers, considering that everything else of salaah is understood and performed as prescribed. We have lots of threads and vids posted here on how to pray you can search through and we are here to help inshaaAllah :)

and ofcourse Allah Knows Best.
