Very good! But you need a question mark after SWIM to make it clear that a question follows this phrase.

(Let's have a) show of hands who here knows how to swim?

Uly, forgive me, but I am not going to re-add this once again. Let's say the question mark is missing by mistake

🇺🇸 Uly 🐝added a comment 2 месяца назад

It’s not just the question mark. it’s the punctuation and the formulation of the question. It looks more like a statement about hands that know how to swim. I corrected it for you in the comment above.

Don't worry, I added my own translation of this, which I think makes everything clearer.
