How would you say 'I take ~ lessons'? Such as dance lessons, swimming lessons, Chinese lessons, etc.

Can you say「水泳の授業をします。」 or 「水泳の授業に通っています。」? And do all of the above examples have the same structure?


The verb to say "to take a lesson" is (授業を)受ける. You can say 水泳の授業を受けています, for example. 水泳の授業に通っています is also okay, but it's closer to "I go to swimming classes".

水泳の授業をします would mean giving a swimming lesson rather than taking it.
