Swimming course

Today, I finished my short swimming course without going nowhere 🙂 It’s awesome but I felt really motivated to learn this sport who very benefits for health. For a long time ago, I learned the brass by myself, from the book and a little everywhere. From more than a week, I’ve relearned some technique than brass, freestyle, on the back, return, etc Sometimes, even rarely, I felt wonderful, I even forgot that I was in the water, there were just a blue colour and a little sound of the water, and a feeling very calm. Then suddenly, I felt like I woke up and the stress was there again because I was on the profound water without master “the water safe” technique. I even took my lovely little girl to the swimming pool to taste the water feeling.

However, I will maybe restart in the other day in the future because I don’t feel comfortable in a place where there are so many people. I feel always stress and I don’t want to stay long in these places like that. Per half, I will master the swim technique one day. For now, I still prefer some exercises on the ground that make me feel better and I can do it every time and almost everywhere I want without any difficulty. 🙂

For now, I understand that the most and basic techniques to learn in the beginning are breath and float. It’s important to feel familiar in the water without panic.

Here are some links about swimming that I found last week:

Some books at mediatheque (in french language):

Feeling lost! so many resources…

I’m lost, completely lost! I feel going around on the circles in the middle of an amount of resources, even online and… free of course 🙂 So many links, so many “best tips and resources”. I don’t know what to learn, how to do anymore. …

Some words to tell you that sometimes, you can feel a kind of exhaustive when you have a lot of things to learn. This is my actual situation while I want to pass the IELTS exam. Basically, I planned to do it in about 2-3 months, by September more exactly. That means I have about more or less 10 weeks to revision. Like you already know, each exam have his proper rules. The English language is like an ocean of knowledge, nobody can embrace the whole see.  Every exam has some rules that the candidate has to follow in order to get the high score. The problem is when I search Google to find out some resources about the IELTS exam, there are too many, a lot, a lot! And I feel simply… lost! What to do?

In the middle of all these sources, that makes me think about the people in the past, who had to struggle in order to find some books in other languages, some foreign newspapers, who passed so much time in face of a very thick dictionary to find the sense of some new words, …

Nowadays, it’s different. We have a lot of chances because all resources are there, on the Internet, but… we don’t have more time to read them. :-/ Mastering something takes time and it demands the concentration. It’s not easy when you have always somethings new to read …
