And that's only one sentence. Where are the others?

@ratu,
The two little penguins are learning how not to drown.

(I assume you meant this sentence as you didn't include the other sentence.)

"No penguins are learning to swim" or maybe "Nothing is swimming anywhere in the universe."

What exactly is it you're looking for?

Ah, interesting take on it, JTT. But I'd opt for "Change these sentences to their positive form" as the negative of "Change these sentences to their negative form".

@MontereyJack,
I believe Ratu is looking for negation in the grammatical sense, MJ.

I should add that there are other ways to do a negative form of the two examples.

@ratu,
The two little penguins are not learning to swim.

If you are interested in grammar, you might also be interested in spellling. The word 'grammar' does not contain the letter 'E'.

It should be noted that this example, above, is not the normal neutral negation. It is more emphatic than the contracted form, aren't. With intonational additions, it could be much more emphatic.
