I have made up three similar sentences below.

(1) I will be available to volunteer for all of the winter.

(2) I will be available to volunteer all of the winter.

(3) I will be available to volunteer all through the winter.

As a non-native English speaker, I think they all sound okay. However, some of my non-native speaking friends think all of my sentences sound unnatural.

Do they sound OK to native speakers? Please give me your opinion. Thanks a lot for your help.

Hi, Ansonman,

From a native standpoint, (3) is perfectly correct and natural, and (1) and (2) are extremely unnatural. You can use (3), or you can say:

(4) I will be available to volunteer all winter.
(5) I will be available to volunteer all winter long.
(6) I will be available to volunteer for the entire winter.
(7) I will be available to volunteer throughout the winter.
