I Love the Water But I Can't Swim

I am NOT afraid of water, in fact I can float, I can snorkel, I dare to dive under water, I am not afraid. I can do basic breaststroke (without dipping yr face under water) and backstroke, but I can't swim FREESTYLE. I can't coordinate my breathing properly, I get puffed after just a few strokes as I am not getting enough air. I want swimming lessons. But I'm afraid I'll be in a group of people who are scared and I won't learn anything as they'll be holding the group back.

i can help teach you how to swim

the best place to learn is at the beach. Your body will float on top even if you get tired because salt water is heavier than your body. But at the lake, your body is the same and you'll have a higher rate of drowning. even at the pool.
