    Re: scuba diving

    Would you help me with the difference between scuba diving and diving, please. I checked it in the Longman but I couldn't find the difference.

    Re: scuba diving

    Are you sure you cannot get it from the dictionary?

    Diving is jumping into the water from above.
    Scuba (self-contained underwater breathing apparatus) diving is moving around underwater. But scuba divers normally talk about diving to mean scuba diving.

    Re: scuba diving

    Free diving is different from scuba diving, but both could be referred to as diving.

    Longman is not the best dictionary. Click here and bookmark the OneLook site for future reference.
