    Not a teacher.
    I often hear one more minute, one more time...
    But according to the teacher here, it might be able to use other way. So, please let the teacher know when you want to use them first. Meanwhile...
    " In one more hour, I will be gone..In one more hour, I'll leave this room".

    For bhaisahab:

    I would say:

    -We can wait 2 more minutes.

    -She survived six months more.


    Am I right? If yes, is there a rule?

    Thank you

    Yes, they are fine, but "We can wait 2 minutes more" would also be OK if less common.
    Also, "She survived six more months" is OK.
