  1. If you get something for free, you don’t have to pay for it, or you don’t have to work for it. For example, when we say that native speakers got their English for free, we mean that they learned English with no effort — without going to language schools, without studying.
    “How much did you pay for the cup?” “Nothing. I got it for free when I bought the TV set.”
    My uncle used to say that you never get anything for free in this life.
    After repairing my watch, they put in a new battery for free.
