(From) Monday to Wednesday or Monday through Wednesday

Post by grammarguy » Fri Apr 13, 2018 9:00 am

I have written down three sentences below.

(1) Monday to Wednesday, I am available for three hours a day.

(2) Monday through Wednesday, I am available for three hours a day.

(3) From Monday to Wednesday, I am available for three hours a day.

They all sound OK to my non-native English speaking friends and me. Do they sound OK to native speakers?

Thanks a lot.

(2) is more natural in AmE, (3) in BrE.
(1) is nonstandard.
