Hello native English speakers,
Which sentence sounds good?
(a) This dolphin never stops swimming in its entire life.
(b) This dolphin never stops swimming over its entire life.
(c) This dolphin never stops swimming all over its life.
(d) This dolphin never stops swimming through its entire life.
(e) This dolphin never stops swimming all through its life.

(b) is from the textbook we use.

I started to teach another high school last month.

(a) ok
(b) good
(c) ng
(d) ok
(e) ok

I would probably say "This dolphin never stops swimming during its entire life."
