Hello vimaal! Yes, I know how to swim. I learned it when I was young when my cousins taught me how to swim. If you will learn it, you won't be afraid to travel through sea and that you will be addicted to it.

I'm a pretty good swimmer. I've know how to swim since I was four and I find the skill very useful. I'm also not an average swimmer who only knows a few strokes although I'm far from professional - I can beat my friends to a swimming contest pretty easily and only find it hard to compete against tall and well trained swimmers although I didn't get any professional training myself. :P My grandmother had a pool built and we swam there when we were kids, too bad it's no long usable today. Thanks for the response on my discussion!

I learned to swim sevene years ago for one month,my father said that I don't move an inch on the water,so I stopped.I began swimming again recently,without knowing why,I suddenly could actually move on the water.

Hi vimaal Swimming is a very good exercise.You will be very much refreshed after a swimming. You can very well learn swimming.Don't give up your hope.Perhaps you may need the help of a qualified swimming instuctor. I have learnt swimming in my childhood from my friends.That too not in a safe place,like in a swimming pool.I have learnt in the rivers and ponds .Those days that are very common place for our bathing in our villages. Perhaps you are not from a village so you did not learn swimming in a natural way. Best wishes.

Yes, I know how to swim. My parents enrolled me in a swimming lesson when I was in grade 5 so until now I practice my swimming skills whenever we go to a swimming pool or beach.

Yeah I do know how to swim I even remember when I first learned how to swim was at our public pool back when I was a kid a long long long time ago. Im not a great swimmer since all I do is when I go to a pool is just fool around lol.
