I'm free!

 I'd like to start a 3 part series on the word 'free'.

It has many meanings, but I will just introduce three which are useful to know for everyday conversation.


This week's phrase is "I'm free". 


Generally it means with constraints or restrictions.

For example:

"The criminal was free after 3 years in prison."


However, in everyday conversation, you can use it to talk about your schedule and plans.

For example:

"I'm free this weekend. Do you want to go for dinner?"
