I recently moved here from overseas, and I started swiming last december, but so far the best I can do is about 25 yards freestyle or maybe 30 yards with a kiking board , before I get nervous and cannot breathe , please help me with any advise you may have so that I can break away for longer distances like 50 meters or longer...

I once taught an eighty-two year old lady how to swim. She finally swam 25 yards. When she finished she said "you taught me how to swim one length, will you teach me to swim two". I told her to turn around and swim back to the other end. She did... and so can you.
