If every country could agree on a standard then we wouldn't need to convert anything! Despite protests from many, Australia converted to metric weights and measures back in the 1970s. I started by learning with the imperial system and then had to convert to the metric system. Whilst I am still conversant with both, I much prefer the simple maths of the SI (metric) system. For those in the few countries that still uses inches, feet, yards, miles, onces, pounds, tons, gallons and horsepower, I can assure you that millimetres, centimetres, metres, kilometres, grams, kilogrammes, tonnes, litres and watts (and kilowatts) are much easier to work with.
