    Ciao, Come se dice "I go swimming in the pool twice a week" in Italiano.?

    Is it "Vado a nuotare nella piscina due volte la setimana"?

    Grazie :D

    Vado a nuotare in piscina due volte alla settimana ( o la settimana).

    I'd rather say:
    Vado in piscina due volta (al)la settimana....

    Se vado in piscina è abbastanza naturale che ci vada per nuotare :)

    Ciao a tutti,

    Just curious. Could one say "Faccio il bagno in piscina due volta la settimana."?

    Grazie,

    It's ok, but "vado in piscina 2 volte la settimana" it's still better for me.
    Also "faccio il bagno" is not the same thing as "nuotare" (bathe vs swim?)....Generally speaking, you can say:
    - Faccio il bagno / la doccia (I have a bath/bathtub or shower)
    - Faccio il bagno in/al mare/lagoz
    - Faccio il bagno in piscina but, more often, you swim in a swimming pool, for instance you train for a contest whilst "fare il bagno" is when you swim just to have fun....

    I hope I've made myself clear enough :)
