Other questions about "Night"

Q: I slept the night without waking up in between for the first time in a very long time does this sound natural?
A: [1]〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️
I slept the night... ❌
I slept through the night...✅

The verb “sleep” can’t be done to an object, so when you use “the” followed by a noun (night), it makes it sound strange.

I can help explain this more if you need!

[2] 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️
...without waking up in between 🔶
...without waking up✅

While not incorrect, “between” is not needed.
(Between also needs two nouns in order to function correctly, and in this example we only have ‘night’.)

[3] 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️
...for the first time in a very long time✅🔶
...for the first time in a while. ✅

This is picky, but “in a while” is a common phrase.

[ALL TOGETHER] 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️

I slept through the night without waking up for the first time in a while.

Q: I used to be a night person, but I turned a morning person after coming to the US. These days I get up at 5 AM and fall asleep at 10-ish PM. does this sound natural?
A: I became a morning person after coming to the US.
Q: I often work the night shift about 17 hours. I recently heard the working hous will extend to 24 hours next spring. It's so awful. does this sound natural?
A: I usually work the night shift about 17 hours a week, now.

(I presume this is what you meant, not that you work 17 hours each day)

But I just heard the working hours will extend to 24 hours next spring. It’s so awful.

You need to contrast your second sentence from the first sentence because the hours changed between to the two sentences. That is why I inserted the words “now” and “But”. BUT only use “But” at the front of a sentence if you are talking. If you are writing this or texting this say: “However,”

I hope this explanation was clear.
Q: Please show me how to pronounce Where were you last night?.

Q: "I was blacked out last night because of heavy drinking." does this sound natural?
