Mensagem:  You are inside the pool and you are willing to tell somebody to mergulhar na piscina. Would you say DIVE IN? DIVE INTO THE POOL? When I am IN the pool I tell others to dive in or to jump in. Hey, the water's fine, come on in!! It's pretty deep here, dive in and see. It's about three meters deep here, dive in and see if you can touch the bottom. Jump in and you'll cool off. Jump in down at the deep end so you don't hurt yourself. Diving here is not allowed. Use the ladder or steps to get into the pool. We don't say that we are "inside the pool" but if we did it would probably mean we were "inside the pool building" or "inside the pool enclosure" (the fence around the pool that keeps little kids from wandering in and falling into the water).
