    It should be much.

    "Alot" would be perfect as for me

    It is more usual to modify time before and after an event to say "long before that time" or "long after that time".

    Then we can use "much" when modifying those phrases: "much longer before that event".

    I hope that helps :)

    I just noticed that if you are modifying the learning and not the time, then of course you can say "learnt much" or learnt a lot"

    I beg you, *please* use "long" here.
