Hello! Maybe you don't know how I learned swimming when I was young. When I was a primary student, I often went to the river with my classmates. I coundn't swim at the beginning. So I dared not go to the deep water, for I couldn't swim. I just played at the shallow water. I never forgot that day. when I was playing at the shallow water, suddenly a big boy push me into the deep river. I stragglled in the water for the shallow water. In the end, I tried my best to swim to the bank by drinking much water. But at last, I learnt swimming. It was a miracle.

Hello taskata10, Welcome to myLot! I am glad that you made it back well when that boy pushed you over the deep end. I like swimming also and I learned it not until I was in my first year in college. I was afraid of going to the deep end of the water in pools or beaches when I was a kid and even just to try. It was at downtown YMCA pool that I had the courage to learn swimming when I saw little kids as young as 2 years old wading and swimming in the pool. Since then on I loved swimming and would stay long in the water whenever I am in one. :-)

Hi! I'm glad that you can swim now. You are right. Before anyone learns to swim, he must overcome the scare of being drowned or something dangerous. But if there is a good swimming teacher, it's not a difficult job to learn swimming. Even today, when I swim in the middle of the river, I still have a sense of scare. But I can forget it in a minute.
