Speaking

Write about your time learning swimming, and some times that you went swimming. Do you think swimming is an important skill? Remember tense for every verb.

I started to learn swimming when I graduated from my post graduate studies at 26. Firstly I learned by myself in gym for a period of time but I couldn’t so I realised I needed to learn with a teacher so I looked for a teacher. I found a female teacher, she was a students, and I had more than 10 classes with her but I still couldn’t swim, so I found another male teacher. I think the male teacher is more professional than the female teacher.
