2.Okay, well, back home people don’t really swim that much, except when they’re children. We used to swim in the river near our home, especially when it was very hot. Here, it’s different – we have a swimming pool in the apartment complex where were staying, so I probably swim about three or four time a week because it’s a great way to relax, and it’s good exercise too.

4.I guess it could be because it’s relaxing and it makes you feel good, and it’s also a super way to cool off when it’s really hot, like it is here at the moment.

As for benefits, well, it’s great exercise, full cardiovascular benefits for your heart and it’s also low-impact exercise so people of any age can do it without risk of damaging their joints. And of course, it’s a great way to have fun at the beach with friends at the pool when we’re relaxing.
