Does the metric system get taught in the US? I heard that they focus on Imperial units more.

For me video games ( and cartoons when I was younger) were the ways I primarily learned English, while school was a way of practicing what I knew, so, no, its not really a sad situation. This is the case with every little thing you can learn though. Outside of the theoretical parts that get explained to you and the bit of practice you have at class, you must be passionate about it and willing to learn it yourself.

@Force_of_Nature Both. (Least in NYC, schools I went to did both).

Video games taught me lots of things. Games like Chrono Trigger and FF6 taught me how to read better and understand what was going on in the game that I took into the real world. Actually helped me better knowing when to use "!" "knowing what "?" was etc. and reading stuff aloud in class.

Crazy stuff right? I'd be lying if I said games like that didn't help me since they were story driven and had a lot of text. A LOT of text. Knowing hit numbers of easy math like "dealing 100 points of damage on a boss with 1200 health will drop it to 1100 so you subtract 100 from it." Swear to everything that I thought about it now and how mindblown I am on how much of a impact it did in the past @Force_of_Nature

Yeah, from what I've gathered, NYC is fairly similar to Toronto although I'm not fully certain of the differences in the education systems. But yeah, it's good to know both the Metric system and Imperial system, since depending on where you go, it'll likely be one or the other to an extent.
