If that is the structure you want to have in the working copy, then
the best idea would be for you to arrange your repository to have the
same structure.

You could check things out independently:

svn co http://server/repository/root wc
cd wc
svn co http://server/repository/module1
svn co http://server/repository/module2
svn co http://server/repository/module3

However then the modules are not connected to the items that came
from root, and you cannot commit anything in any of the modules
together with anything else. In other words, if you make a change to
several items that came from root, and also make changes to modules 1
and 2, and want to commit all these changes, Subversion will require
you to make at least three commits -- the items that came from root,
the items that came from module1, and the items that came from module2.
