  Of the following skills, which would you like to learn most? Car repair, swimming, or playing the piano?

  你会选择学习下列哪项技能?1.弹钢琴 2.游泳 3.汽车修理

  I think the most important skill that a person should learn is swimming. Here are some of the benefits of being an accomplished swimmer.

  Swimming is probably the best way to tone up. It works just about every muscle, it’s low impact, it’s good cardio, and it’s enjoyable. If you have an interest in taking up swimming, I suggest you turn that interest into a reality. The best workout regimen is the one that you enjoy and will actually do. It’s hard to stay committed to something you don't like, but this is seldom a problem when learning how to swim.

  Swimming also builds tenacity and endurance. When I started, I couldn't swim across the short end of the indoor pool. So, I just swam a little and rested a little each day. I made notes of my achievements and committed to building on previous benchmarks until I could swim 1/4 mile nonstop.

  我认为一个人应该学习的重要技能是游泳。以下是游泳运动员所能获得的一些好处。

  游泳可能是最好的锻炼方式。它只对每一块肌肉起作用,它是没有对抗的有氧运动,很有趣。如果你对游泳有兴趣,我建议你去试试。此外,一个绝对最好的健身方案是一个你喜欢和实际上会做的。很难坚持自己不喜欢的东西。

  游泳也能增强毅力和耐力。当我开始游泳的时候,我游不到室内游泳池的尽头。所以,我只是游了一点点,每天休息一会儿。我每周会用笔记来纪录我每天游了多少和致力于提高的项目, 直到我能一口气游1/4英里。
