I didn't really "learn" how to swim until I was in the university. I took an elective swimming class, hoping it will diminish my dreams of drowning. :lol: On our paper the other day, the Sports Secretary said every children should have learned how to swim by age 12. He's thinking of incorporating swimming courses in the curriculum of young kids. So do you know how to swim? What age did you learn? Should everyone know how to swim or it's not THAT important?
