Everything about this type of learning was new to me from using headphones to participating in class via the internet. Initially I wasn't planning to do it that way. I just jumped in and started swimming and am so glad I did. I thought I wouldn't be able to keep up with the rest of the class, but we all seem to be at about the same learning level which is encouraging. Also, the teachers and staff have been patient with me and very helpful. I look forward to class each week and feel a little disappointed when the routine is interrupted by holidays.
