Can you swim?

Swimming is not any difficult task. It is just a matter of practice. But I have many friends who do not know how to swim. I ask them, if you accidentally fall into a ditch or into a pond or into a river what would you do? Will you wait for the divers to arrive to pull you out of the water? They only laugh. But it not any question that can invoke laughter! Swimming is related to saving your life sometimes. So we should practice swimming from our childhood. Do you know swimming? If yes, how and when did you learn it?

Hello Litlle_boy! I agree with you that swimming is like saving our life sometimes. But others find it hard to learn how to swim which I think is right because it's hard to balance our body. I can compare learning swimming to learning how to drive a bicycle. All we need is balance our body, although there's more probability in getting hurt when learning to ride a bicycle than learning how to swim. In your questions: Do you know swimming? - Yes, I know how to swim. how and when did you learn it? -I learn it when I was a kid. I grew up to a place where there are seas nearby. I learned it by always swimming to the sea everyday and my older cousins taught me too.

I really dont know how to swim.. eventhough i would love to learn but i want to learn it by myself..Its just that im afraid, that if someone would teach me, then he would just let go of me, and I would drowned or drink saltwater.. I only know how to do, "floating"?! I think if I the ship will sank, I would definitely die.. Oh GOD please dont!!

Swimming is a fun activity for me. I swim a lot. I have a sister who believes she can not swim. At this stage in her life, I believe her panic is what would cause her to drown and not her lack of swimming skill. I believe that becomes the case with anyone who does not learn to swim when they are children.
