    Default Is it okay to say "We are available next week." in oral English?

    Hi,

    In oral English, is it okay to say "We/I are/am available next week." instead of "We/I will be available next week."?

    I seem to have heard of the former saying...

    Thank you!

    You can say that in oral or in written English.

    They mean the same.
