    I don't use it and wouldn't mind freeing up the space, if I delete it but want it at some point in the future, could I download it again for free? I didn't pay for it, it came with my mac.

    Yes you can. Delete it now and download it later. Or you back it up.
    Also know, that GarageBand has an extra folder in the Library / Application Support folder with samples.
    To get rid off languages, use Monolingual.

    But for that to work you need to have registered your mac with your Apple account right?

    Monolingual is btw a great piece of advice. It saves in space and might make your mac a little faster.

    Seriously, use Monolingual FIRST. Then, see how big Garageband is. If you still want to get rid of it, make sure your Mac is registered with your iTunes account, or you won't be able to re-D/L Garageband for free in the future.
