Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
Hi, Emma. Can you teach me how to swim?
Sure, Ron! First thing to do is to let go of your fear of drowning.
Okay, I’ll try.
Then you must get used to floating. To do it, hold on to the side of the
pool, and let your legs float out behind you.
Yes, you’re doing great. For extra stability, put out your arms at a right
angle, forming a “T” shape.
Is this how you do it?
Yes! And while floating, you can practice kicking. Let’s try flutter kick first.
Point your toes out, keep your legs straight, and make small kicks
Swimming is not as bad as I thought!
Certainly! Let’s practice doing a crawl tomorrow.
