Chinese students practice paddling together in an online swimming class, which amused netizens because they looked like a group of zombies when they wiggled their limbs on the screen.
Disturbed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the swimming class at a university in Qiqihar city, northeast China's Heilongjiang province, taught students various swimming strokes online.
During the freestyle stroke practice, some students were prone to stools and swinging their legs, while others were standing with their hands outstretched. These postures made many netizens joke that they looked like extras in South Korea's action-horror film Train to Busan when the video clip was released on Sina Weibo.
To better interact with each other, the teacher encouraged every student to turn on the video chat to exchange skills and review each other.
The outbreak of the epidemic has prompted many schools to creatively offer outdoor courses in new ways, such as swimming classes.
Students at a university in Chengdu, Southwest China's Sichuan Province, brought their washbasin filled with water to simulate breathing in the water under the guidance of the teacher during the swimming class.
The teacher said that practicing breathing in the water basin helps students overcome the fear of entering the pool.
