Celsius, and many others. You will learn which ones describe length, volume, temperature, distance, and weight. I will teach you when to use which measurement and how to use them in sentences. We will also talk about the
imperialsystems, as well as standard sizes and lengths for things such as an Olympic pool, a marathon, a football field, and a hockey rink. This material is very important to learn. But don’t worry. There will be a quiz for you to test your understanding after watching
I cannot thank you enough for helping me.
My God ! Why is it possible to simplify things when you can do complicated things?
One day it will be necessary to unify all this, but unfortunately we will no longer be there!
Thank you Adam for your advice: I will use the converter on my smartphone.
Why doesn’t everybody use metric system? It would be so simplier.
That’s a good question.
Mostly just custom (it’s what people are used to), and because of the cost and inconvenience of switching. A lot of tools, for example, are in non-metric sizes (16ths of an inch instead of millimetres).
I think they just want to drive us crazy when drinking beers, paying in different currencies, driving our car and fining us for speeding…it´s all that!!
Yes, Lorcy, it would. I imagine one day everyone will use one system, though it might take a few generations to change mindsets.
thank you,it’s really helpful lessons.
Happy New Year, Adam.

If you are watching on YouTube, look for the setting button (looks like a gear) and once you click on it you can see different qualities. Choose the highest.
Hope this helps.
the lesson is quite difficult to me because in Vietnam use metric system so they aren’t familar in my country. Thank Adam
I got it
Thank you so much Adam!!!
Interesting, as I thought you follow the US system (miles instead of kilometres i.e.), instead of the european one.
Canada is a funny hybrid. We also mix our word choices and spellings with American and British English :)
Hi Adam, thanks for this lesson which contains the main measurements, this is powerful to improve the vocabulary.
What is pattern clothes??
Patterns are designs on fabric, like stripes, checkers, polka dots, etc. Is this what you meant?
Thank you Adam, Happy New Year!
Sorry it’s a bit late, but to you as well Terrysam :)
Parallel to the incredible economic developments China has experienced over the past few decades have only been limited political reforms.
(This sentence has two main verbs with no punctuation or conjunction. Is this a correct sentence ?)
Actually, this sentence has no subject, so it is not a complete sentence.
China has experienced incredible economic developments over the past few decades that have not been met with parallel political reforms.
Is this what you had in mind?
Could please share us more scientific words becouse they are used most

In question 3, the first option can’t be correct because there would be the word ‘tall’ repeating twice.
