Measurement Confusion

I really wish I had a better understanding of imperial measurements! I was solely taught metric at school and now find yards, inches, feet etc impossible to visualise! I can convert it to metric but it is a pain. I believe it was an E.U. Rule that enforced the decision to stop teaching imperial in Britain. Daft move, as people older than me (such as my mother) talk in inches, as do a lot of my American friends (and their patterns!).

1 yard = 36 inches = 91.44cm
It doesn't exactly roll off the tongue! Oh well, moan over.
