    1.half an hour (O)

    2. an half hour (X) ==> a half hour

    3. half hours (X) ==> half hour

    "half an hour" and "a half hour" are all used commonly, for example:

    I will see you in half an hour.

    It is a half hour program.

    However, if you change the above sentence as:

    I will see you in a half hour

    It is half an hour program.

    They would all sound awkward. Therefore, which one to use in the sentence will need some practice.

    half hours 1小時30分對吧?

    No, "half hour" is just 30 minutes.

    1小時30分 = one hour thirty minutes (direct way)

    = one and a half hours (mathematical way)

    = ninety minute (indirect way)
