    The longer the speaker was speaking

    I am wondering if my sentences sound natural.

    The longer the speaker was speaking, the less interested the audience became. About forty minutes into his long-winded speech, the half of the listeners had already left.

    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
