Swim England free 'Learn to Swim' flash cards in different languages

Athletes lane swimming

Earlier this year, Swim England launched new visual resources to support swimming teachers in England and abroad.

The national governing body’s Learn to Swim team have developed flash cards for learners and to help support a variety of learning styles.

Having been created in English – the flash cards are now available, which are now up to 16 languages.

The translated resources are being provided in the hopes of supporting swimming teachers who may have a language barrier between themselves and their learners.

This work was started following a request from one swimming teacher who has recently started teaching two Ukrainian children and asked for resources to help. Since then due to the popularity of the flash cards, the team has received requests to provide them in more languages.
