Swimming Lessons (by Daniel)

When I first heard about swimming at school, I was surprised because there is no swimming class in America. In Japan, there is a swimming pool in almost every school.  We sometimes have a swimming class.  At the beginning of school, there is an opening ceremony where the head teacher puts salt and wine in the water.  At the class, we first go into the pool and practice staying under the water.  After that, we all walk in the same direction and create a current and practice swimming the opposite way.  Then, we swim laps, and have free time.  When we swim laps, we use the crawl stroke. At free time, we usually splash water at each other.  Swimming can be very tiring because we have to swim a lot.  I had the most fun swimming against the current.
