Assunto:  "I like swimming." E o gerúndio.
 
Mensagem:  And yet you take swimming lessons and wear a swimming suit.

If you like to swim, you know how to swim.
It is possible, however, to like swimming and not know how to swim a stroke.

My personal observation:
I like to swim = I enjoy propelling myself through the water without outside assistance.
I like swimming = I like to participate in or to watch the sport.
