    Hi,
    "They are soon accustomed to swimming."
    I would like to rewrite this sentence in some following ways. Please tell me if they are correct?
    1. It took them a short time to get accustomed to swimming.
    2. It is a short time since they got accustomed to swimming.
    3. It is at speed that they got accustomed to swimming.
    Thanks.

    I think 1 is ok, 2 and 3 are incorrect.
