It’s nice to go for a swim on a hot summer day. You can go to a swimming pool, the ocean, a lake or a river. Knowledge of water safety can help you avoid accidents. Learn to swim first. If you can’t swim well, wear a life jacket. Try to swim in places with a lifeguard. When you go swimming, don’t push others, hold them under the water, or jump on them. And never dive into water when you can’t see the bottom.
(in the Jungle Café)
James: Boy, it’s hot today, Susie.
Susie: It’s even hotter than yesterday. It’s a perfect day for swimming.
James: Great idea! Let’s go swimming after work!
James: I like the ocean. But it’s too far away.
Susie: Let’s go to a place with a lifeguard. I can’t swim very well.
James: You can wear a life jacket.
Susie: I often do. I want to avoid an accident!
James: You need some knowledge of water safety.
Susie: Yes. Everyone should know basic water safety rules.
James: Some people know them, but they don’t follow them.
Susie: I know. I see kids pushing their friends into the water.
James: Or jumping on them.
Susie: You shouldn’t do that.
James: And never dive into water when you can’t see the bottom.
Susie: Right. That’s a bad idea.
