Sample Lesson
Be Safe in the Water
注意水中安全
Ruth Devlin

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.


 


Conversation A


(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!


Susie:  Where?


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!


 


Conversation B


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.
