I learnt how to swim since I was young. Once I started to be able to swim with less effort, I continued to practice everyday. At the moment, I can already swim well, and I am also a school representative (or I represent school – in swimming matches). In 2 months’ time, there will be a swimming competition with other schools, that’s why I have to practice (or train) swimming everyday.
