The only hard thing about learning to swim is learning to float, which you have to do first. You must relax and if you're a bit afraid of the water this will be hard for you. After you learn to float in the water it is easy to use your arms and legs to propel yourself forward or backward. You should learn to swim, it is fun and relaxing and very good for you.

The most important thing is to feel relaxed and not scarried.You just have to be calm and self-confident and you will make it.I tried all by my self and I did it.Nobody thought me oe to swim and I may now swim even 1km.It is the biggest pleasure I have ever felt.

Hi Learning to swim is very easy but to go into a swiming career is very hard work. If you don't know anything it wil take you about 2 to 3 months and it is very interesting, you learn how to move your body in the water and all that stuff. No one is suppose to be scared of water, if you learn well you have nothing to worry about.

IF you are a fat guy is very easy. Just put your body into the water shake legs and tatam you can swim. I swim since i am 3 years old. Learned in the back pool . It was very easy at that time but now if i have to learn again it will be verry verry difficult. You shall run away from swimming if the water scares you.

I learned to swim when I was in college. I taught both of my children to swim when they were only two or three years old. You have to learn to relax, hold air in your lungs and not thrash about. I have helped teach people to swim as well. It is sometimes harder for a man to learn to swim than it is for a woman because men have less internal body fat and do not float as well. There are still some water situations that will make me cautious, maybe a little bit afraid, like at a lake or an ocean, but in a swimming pool I am not afraid. I can always find a way to get out.
