Hobbies 2, lesson 3 never teaches 游

I was just completing lesson 3 of Hobbies 2, and while it teaches 旅, it never teaches 游, only when it's casually dropped in one or two sentences that mention 旅游

That's pretty fine, learning through context is cool, but there's no part that actually teaches you the character or shows it in large print to really examine.

遊 and 游 is different!

Travel = 旅遊 Swim = 游泳

游 is derived from 旅 (to travel) and 水 (positioned on the left). Think of this: "I travel by water, so I swim in the river!"
