English swimming lesson for adults (Piscine de Varembe)

Hi there,

I am wondering if there are any swimming lessons for adults (beginner level) in English? I would prefer to start my swim lessons in Piscine de Varembe but I did not see any info on the website Thanks in advance!

As far as I know they are still closed. So you need to wait.

According to the website, lessons for people over 20 years old are suspended due to the restrictions. You may be able to sign up for classes in the future. There are group classes for adult beginners, max. 6 persons. In addition they offer private courses or other special classes upon request. Most likely the teachers speak some English and probably enough to safely teach a beginner, but best to ask. Might not be suitable in a group where instructions would need to be given twice but just call or write them.

Thanks! There is one package they allowed me to book but I noticed the suspension message too. I think it'd be better to wait until it announces on the home page!

Thanks for the suggestion. Yea I think I better call them and go for a private session - kinda dangerous for a beginner to learn with the language barrier.
