This English sentence is unnatural, "We studied not for long." I would say, "We didn't study very long" or "We didn't study long".

I agree, I would never say “we studied not for long” however phrazing it this way does help (me) learn the structure/word order in Indonesian

"We didn't study for long" is my preferred way.

I think "we did not study long" would be a more acceptable english sentence.
