Q: How do you say this in English (US)? I studied at a stretch for 3 hrs would you correct my mistakes?
A: “I studied for 3 hours.” “I studied for 3 hours straight.”
Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? I studied at a stretch for 3 hrs would you correct my mistakes?
A: Yes, I would correct your mistakes. This sentence does not sound natural. Generally, the phrase that indicates a particular period of time is placed before the phrase "at a stretch". For example, one could say, "I have fasted for seven days at a stretch". In this example, the time period (seven days) is placed before the phrase "at a stretch". In your case, you could say "I studied for 3 hours at a stretch". You could also say "I studied for a 3 hour stretch". I would prefer to use this sentence as I feel that it flows better, but both sentences make sense grammatically. Both phrases simply mean that you studied for a 3 hour period without stopping. Hope this helps :)
