We grew up literally in water. There is no other way to go, except to the waters. We learned to swim on our own with batches of children going to the beaches, you gotta learn how to swim and you will be the laughing stock of other children. When I migrated here in the US, swimming lessons is one of the ways to learn swimming and we use the pool. Good thing is that for children and babies, the teachers are good and accommodating.
