Hi, please correct the following sentences.
I swam 25 meters with the butterfly.
I swam the butterfly for 25 meters.
Also, which sentence do you think is better?
"I swam the butterfly for 25 meters" is the proper way to phrase this. It is implied that you mean the butterfly stroke, and will be understood by swimming enthusiasts. "I swam with the butterfly" makes it sound as if you had an actual insect with you.
