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.

Tuesday, December 31st 2019

    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!!

      Thursday, January 2nd 2020

    Yes, Lorcy, it would. I imagine one day everyone will use one system, though it might take a few generations to change mindsets.

    Hi Louise,

    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.

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 ?)
Thank you.

Wednesday, January 8th 2020

    Hi Qionglan,

    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?
