Describe an outdoor sport that you would like to play for the first time
You should say:
- What it is;
- When and where you would like to play;
- Who you will play it with;
- And how about your feeling.
Well actually, I think nowadays most sports can be played both indoors and outdoors. For me, when it comes to an outdoor sport that I’d like to give a try, the first one I can think of is swimming. I’ve never swam somewhere outdoors yet.
If memory serves correctly, when I was about 15 years old, my mom helped me sign up for a swimming class for beginners. I spent weeks learning how to swim in frog style, the most basic style. From then on, I’ve always practiced my swimming skills in an indoor swimming pool.
But I’ve never tried to swim outside. Not long ago, I heard a new swimming center was built in our neighborhood. It’s a large outdoor swimming pool. And it’s practically within spitting distance of my home. I heard tons of people go there to swim. You know, now it’s the perfect season for swimming and I really want to try it out.
I don’t know how I would feel if I swam outdoors. I guess it’ll be worlds away from indoor swimming pools. I could definitely breathe fresh air while swimming. However, there are too many variables outside. I’m kind of concerned that the weather may change suddenly and become windy. The pool may become very cold and even cause me to catch a heavy cold. But it’s also good to try new things. I will pick a sunny day and go have a swim there. Maybe I’ll like it.
