    Swimming lessons

    Hey everyone, can someone recommend a place for adult swimming lessons?

    I am more interested in group sessions as private i guess will be more expensive.

    There are many cheap group swimming lessons in Cantonese.

    Swimming lessons in English will be more expensive than in Cantonese and not widely available.

    It is worthwhile checking out the YMCA in TST (a block or so away from the Peninsula). The instructor-student ratio is about 1-6 or 1-7. In other words, there is very little personal attention. That said, it also depends on how you engage with the instructor. I managed to learn the free style / front crawl from scratch in 10 lessons. And the breaststroke in another 10 lessons. Again from scratch. So, it's not totally useless. I'd say a smaller group is better given a choice.

    I know the YWCA has bilingual swimming lessons for beginners as a friend went to some classes last year. No idea on how much English was used though.

    This mob below is mainly for kids but they do run an adult beginners class (age 18+) on Mondays and Wednesdays at South Island School (Aberdeen). The Monday class runs from 24th April to 26th June, the Wednesday class from 19th April to 28th June, both time 7:30pm - 8:30pm. Cost is HK$220 per lesson.

    SunnYat Sen Memorial Park do subsidized swimming lessons for kids, incredibly cheap. Give them a call if they have a programme for adults too:
