This blog is absolutely free… will always be… do you have some free time to read?

Do you easily accept anything that is Free?… I take it with ‘a pinch of salt’ until I am sure that ‘there are no strings attached’!

I gladly accept and acknowledge with thanks the various Cliparts and images that I get for FREE.

Even word-space this platform for Blogging is free. Thanks to the many share-able tools available on the internet we will keep this blog free for all the readers.   All forms of news, information  some forms of literature (e-books) and even many forms of Art are increasingly becoming FREE.  I usually don’t read mails with the word Free written ‘in the subject of the mail’. Numerous freebies offered by ‘online advertisers’ have irritated me to the extent that I even ignore tips that I get for usage of a tool that I downloaded myself. It maybe for research purpose only means it is not error-free.  After some features are free for some time higher level functionality will be charged. I am careful not to  give my credit-card details on the internet – as the charges could come after the offer period ends.  Why bother – I have the freedom to choose what I need and not just everything that is Free. I live a trouble-free and carefree life!     

I don’t take any medicines or oils ‘by any name’ or ‘any magical properties’ as FREE!

Let us learn all the usages (and some abuses) of the word ‘Free’ as an adjective today. We will learn to use ‘error-free’,

I don't take any medicines or oils 'by any name' or 'any magical properties' as FREE!

‘trouble-free’, ‘carefree’ as also ‘freedom’ (an uncountable noun) plus there are some ‘freebies’ for good participation in the Basic English class today:

  • Is your mind free today to have short open discussion?
  • Is there anything ‘that you value’ that is free in your life?
  • What are some of the thing that you use and you got them for free?
  • How much freedom do you have to decide on your career choice?
  • What are some of the things that are ‘error-free’ or ‘trouble-free’?
  • Are you careful or carefree about your dressing sense?  When and in what situations…
  • What are some of the hidden-charges when you freely accept free offers from strangers?
  • Are you free this evening for a cup of coffee?

One of the most searched word on google today is ‘Free’ and so most advertisers use it to attract the audience!

“Absolutely Free T-shirt from Sun Micro-systems”

I got this mail this morning with a caption" Absolutely Free T-shirt from Sun-Micro systems - What can be the research an IT company would do?
I got this mail this morning with this image and rather inviting offer. I wonder, what can be the research an IT company would do with a free t-shirt? I don’t offer my body for any kind of research… would you?

 

Knowledge or Gyan on this blog is Free for lifetime for anyone who can understand the written word.

Class discussion questions for ‘Get Selected’ and ‘Go Global’ students:

  • Does the word ‘free’ undermine ‘the value’ or does it make it more attractive and accessible to people at large?
  • What are things that should remain free?
  • Do you take any free advice from anyone?

    (Ashish: some corrections done)

    Notes:
    *’have become’ or ‘am’
    you don’t use tuition you take tuition
    #everybody is singular so verb should be’searches’ NOT ‘search’

    • Good usage of a simple word ‘free’ in your comment. A better word which has similar meaning is ‘Complementary’. Now what are opposites or antonyms of ‘free’: it can be ‘busy’ or ‘charged’ or ‘occupied’ or ‘chargeable’ Can you make a para using all these words.

      See the small grammatical corrections done. The vocabulary mistake is in the use of ‘leave’ where you wanted to say ‘live’. It changes the whole meaning. Be careful!
