Hello respected teachers,

We were talking for two hours nonstop, so I got tired and didn't feel like attending another one-and-half-an-hour class.

Is the underlined correct please? If not, how would you recast it?

I am looking forward to your answers.

'another one-and-a-half-hour..'

Personally I would prefer '90 minute class'

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. (Anon)

"Another one-and-a-half-hour class" is OK, but it seems a bit overlong. "Another ninety-minute class" would be easier to say.

Another choice could be "another hour and a half of class".

Of course this presupposes that the preceding two hours of nonstop talking constituted a class or classes. If not, then "another class" would seem inappropriate.
