    Take a plunge

    Hello everyone,
    This sentence "Did you have a chance to take a plunge?" Can it be interpreted as "Did you have a chance to go for a swim/go for a dip/to bathe in the sea? In general, can "take a plunge" be used in this meaning?
    Thank you .

    Without any other context, it's very difficult to say. "To take a plunge" is not a natural English phrase. "To take the plunge" means to go ahead and do something, usually something you have been debating whether or not to do.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
