Teaching Swimming

A friend and former student recently contacted Dianne and wanted to know if Dianne would teach her friend to swim so that the friend could later take the diving class with me.  Dianne asked me and we decided to give it a try.
 Dianne has been swimming forever and taught swimming for several years to children.  Children, however, are fearless.  Teaching adults is another matter.
 She spent some time working on buoyancy and breathing.
 Breathing out of the nose at the appropriate time is a lot more difficult than it looks.  This becomes more challenging when you cannot breath in through your nose.
