Being able to have conversations in English.

I was stammering while speaking English today. So I said to myself:
'Being able to have a conversation entirely in English is going to take more time'

Is the sentence correct and natural sounding?

    Which part of your sentence do you think might be a problem, Ashraful Haque? We can't proofread entire sentences here.

    I thought of writing it down but the post was getting too big. And I know for a fact that people don't like big posts :p
    I've bolded the confusing parts:

    Being able to 1)having/have
    2)a conversation/conversations

    If you start with "Being able," it has to be "to have." You could, however, start the sentence "Having a conversation..."

    You can use either "conversations" or "a conversation."
