Learning to Swim

Swimming is a very useful skill. If you can swim, you might be allowed to learn to paddle a canoe, to sail a boat, or to try a snorkel and mask in the water in Hawaii.

When Evelyn had just finished kindergarten, she signed up for swimming lessons at the park near our house. She was not very lucky, because that June was a very cold month. She had to go in the water every morning even though it was very very cold, but she learned to swim. Since she could swim, Evelyn enjoyed sailing little boats when she was at camp.

When I went to camp, I wasn't a very good swimmer, and I missed a lot of fun. Now I love to go snorkeling and see lots of fish. I had to learn to swim while I was also learning to snorkel, and it took me a long time.

Miriam and Alice are taking swimming lessons. Their teacher's name is Mr.Daniel. He helps them learn all about the water in the pool at the George Mason sports center. They get dressed in the locker room before the class, and then they get to see what everyone is doing in various rooms of the building. They watched some wrestlers practicing, and some pilates classes, and some other swim classes.
