It'd be fatal if you're stuck in a situation wherein swimming is required. I suggest you take swimming lessons. or if not, wear a life vest or take one of those floaters.

It's not a bad thing, socially speaking... but for personal safety reasons, you might want to really learn, at the very least, how to float in water.

I don't know if I can give any "tips", but going to the local sports center and enrolling in a summer course is the easiest thing to do. If you can explain your situation to the coach (i.e. You just can't seem to learn how to swim), I'm pretty sure the Coach will think up of new strategies to help get you swimming in that pool.

Bottom line is, don't give up. If you really want to learn how to swim, you will learn how to swim.

Its not really hard to swim. If you dont want to take swim lesson. I suggest you go to a beach WITH someone that knows how to swim and use those floaties. Thats how i learn to swim

Try going to the shallow end and then hold your breath and lean back. You'll float. Relax and let the air out and you'll sink a bit. Then try it facing forward. Do the same thing. Eventually you'll get more comfortable with it and you'll become aware of the limits of your density and displacement. You'll stop pushing the water away and instead embrace it. Swimming will come naturally to you after you've overcome your fear and stop thinking about it so much. Remember, it's humans who think that they have to learn how to swim.

Duh... Swimming can be considered one of the basic skills that must be learn. If you do not know how to swim, it is very hard to survive if you are in danger.
