MapleHow about "in two-week time"? Is it also correct and common?Neither correct nor common. Question has already been answered (twice) above.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Maple, you can refer to a two-week period, or a two-week holiday, but not "in two-week time."

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I believe it's "two weeks' time"..in Britain. However, in the US it's more common to just say "in two weeks". My public radio station broadcasts the BBC every night and it drives me crazy when they add "time" to every statement of time. It's redundant!!! "Two weeks" is a measure of time, so the Brits DON'T need to add "time" every instance that they mention a period of time.
