| Bonjour Camile! The swimming scares me too. I have to take my goggles off! It feels like I sm drowning snd becoming blind! 😠😭 You actually kinda have the same feelings as me. 😊 Can we be friends and SOTW mail each other, Camille? 😏|

| Hi Camille,
I have used to have the same thing but these excises really helped!
1.At the shallow end of the pool, sit across the pool edge and let your legs dangle in the water, sweeping back and forth. Take your time to enjoy the sensation of the water flowing around your legs.
2.Scoop up water with your hands and apply it to your face, as if to wash it. This is to get used to having your face being in contact with water.
3.Scoop up water with your hands again, hold your breath and then splash the water into your face. As you are wearing swim goggles, your eyes are protected and you can try to keep them open. As you are holding your breath and sitting upright, you should notice that the water can’t get into your nose and mouth. Enjoy the refreshing sensation of the water on your face.
4.Slowly get into the water via the steps or ladder in the shallow area of the pool. Make sure that the water doesn’t get above your chest. Walk around for some time, staying in the shallow area of the pool. Enjoy the sensation of the water flowing around your body.

| Hey Camille! just go bit by bit, you know? first you have to get use to the water so in shallow water first until you get used to that, then go a little deeper, and while you've got your whole body in the water that's when you should start getting your
buoyancy stabilized, haver you can float without getting nervous then that's when you start learning to swim by kicking your legs a bit.
all that little by little.

| Hi Camille and everybody. I know how your feeling Camille. When I was six, I was afraid too. I think you need a coach to teach you how to swim step by step. (sorry, my english is not very good. Please correct me. huhuhuhu)|

Don't rush into swimming, just do little bits and pieces until you feel more confident and get to know what you can do in the water. This strategy worked for my little cousin.

Hi, guys. How many meters can you swim without break. How long can you swim? Where do you swim? In a pool or in the sea or river? I live in a cold place so I get a chance to swim in the sea or river only in July and August. All the rest of the time I swim in a pool twice or once a week with my uncle Dima.

If you want to learn ho to swim mofe your arms forward and backward and your legs ap and down.It's more isi to start in a piscine NOT VERY HIGH.
If you want to learn to tuch the botom of the piscin the only thing you have to do swim down.It's more isi to start on a piscin that is NOT VERY HIGH.
It's O.K. I can't swim in deep water either and my friends can too.
