A letter to Mark
Guess what! All my friends are going to "Waterland" next week and I can't swim! What shall I do? If I go with my friends, they will be teasing me all the time. I have wanted to learn to swim for a long time but I feel embarrassed to start learning at my age. What would you advise me to do? How many lessons will I need? Is it difficult to learn swimming? Well, I'd better go now as my mum's calling me for dinner.

Thanks for your letter! It was great to hear from you! Sorry, I haven't written because I was so busy with my exams.
You’ve asked me to give some advise. Well, in my view, you should ask your close friend or dad to teach you some basic movements and to help you to keep on a water surface. I don't think it will take a lot of time, of course it depends on your desire. Swimming isn't so difficult, especially for teenagers because we can learn fast.
By the way, what sport do you like? Since what time have you been doing it? Are your friends fond of this sport too?
