I like swim, when I'm a child, my father teached me to learn swim, becaue my father thought learn to swim can avoice the accident when you met the flood. I often to go to the natatorium to swim, and I can swim 200meters long. Hi, my friends, how many meters can you swim? Do you know swim in the young age?

I did enroll in a swimming lesson 2 times when I was a kid. Yes I know how to swim but doesn't have much interest with it. When I was a little younger I can dive in 18 feet pool (well that was the requirement for us to graduate, but If I have a choice, I will not... hehehehe). Anyways I stop practicing and I dont usually go to beaches or resorts, we don't have swimming pool in our house so when I go swimming now I don't go to high areas. I am having a hard time holding my breath already not like before. Guess I need practice.

Wow, it's great that you can dive in 18 feet pools to swim though you were required to do that get a graduate, but you did it, so you are great. Swiming need to practise, because if you didn't swim for a long time, you will feel a little difficult to spread yourself. If you don't like it, so don't swim, do your favorite sports.

I know to swim. I studied swimming when I was a kid. My uncle taught me swimming. We have a small river flowing infront of my house. All of us swim and take bath in the river. All my family knows swimming. I am not very good at swimming and I can't swim for many meters. Now, I am working and living in a city. So, I haven't gone for swimming for a long time.

It's a great to have a river in the front of house, I think it will have a little strange if you have a long time to swim. Swin like a exercise and can let people get heathy. Do you think so?

This is a really good discussion and I am sure that there are a lot of people who know how to swim,while there are probably a lot of people who do not know how to swim,and I can honestly say I know how to swim,I learned when I was younger and several people helped to teach me until I learned,including my father,my mother does not know how to swim,and her mother does not either,since when my grandmother was a teen she got pushed in a pool and almost drowned,she never learned,and she never taught my mother,and my mother said she was going to make sure I learned and was not afraid of the water,have a great day,good luck with your life,and all of your mylotting goals,and Happy Posting.

i really dont know swiming and so is my husband too but we wished we could swim and together and it would be such a fun but unluckily we dont know to swim but we would surely put our child for the swiming classes so that he can learn swiming and i think it is better that the person should know any kind of activities which can help himself to keep fit and strong and also it is a kind of excercise which keeps us fit.

To be honest, I don't know how to swim. Out of most of my friends, I am the only one that does not know how to swim. I kind of developed a fear of pools after someone tried to drown me in one. I couldn't hold my breath and they pushed me in a deep pool and kept me from coming up by repeating pushing me down. It was dark, and I was blacking out. I was eventually pulled out and revived. Never knew why these people did that. I used to cringe being around one, but not as much. I have a friend who is a very good swimmer and tried to get me to start, but understood why I was even scared of taking a bath (I took showers though), after that incident.
