Question about telling time in japanese?

Hi
I need help from a native japanese speaker.
I need to say:
40 minutes
20 minutes
1 hour
30 minutes
15 minutes
2 hours
8 hours
1 week

Please, thank you!

Minutes can be pronounce as bun (when the nember ends in 'n', pun (Ippun, ~juupun) and fun (for everything else).
Hours are ~ji. This never changes.
Weeks are shuu.

So,
40 minutes - 四十分 yonjuupun
20 minutes - 二十分 nijuupun
1 hour - 一時 ichiji
30 minutes - 半分/三重分 hanbun/sanjuupun
15 minutes - 五十分 gojuupun
2 hours - 二時 niji
8 hours - 八時 hachiji
1 week - 一週間 isshuukan

Minutes is never pronounce as "bun"!

40 minutes > yonjuppun (yonjuu + pun > yonju-ppun)
20 minutes > nijuppun
1 hour > ichijikan
30 minutes > sanjuppun (you cannot say "han-jikan")
15 minutes > juugofun
2 hours > nijikan
8 hours > hachijikan
1 week > isshuukan (ich + shuukan > i-sshuukan)

ex.
1 hour and 30 minutes > ichijikan sanjuppun (but you can also say "ichijikan han")
1 o'clock > ichiji
