Can you cross the river?
Michael : Can you cross the river?
Johan : If I could swim, I would try
Michael : How about now, haven’t you been able to swim yet? or Couldn’t you swim yet?
Johan : Not yet. Can you teach / train me?
Michael : Yes. Let’s jump now. I will start to teach / train you swimming
Johan : No, I can’t do that. I will be drown soon
Michael : Just hold my hand, and we’ll jump together
Johan : How deep is the river do you think?
Michael : Will not be more than two meters
Johan : Are you sure you will keep holding my hand when we are crossing?
Michael : Of course, I don’t want you to get drown
Johan : Is there another way to train me swimming?
Michael : If you cannot do it here, we can go to the swimming pool one day
Johan : That’s a better idea
Michael : Please set a time. When you’re ready, just call me
Johan : Thanks. Will probably tell you next week
