Mido cinco pies y once pulgadas.

  • Yes, that's the tranlation, but all Spanish speeking countries use the metric system, and nobody would properly understand how high you are. - 00e657d4 Sep 13, 2009 flag

Note that the only three countries that haven't yet adopted the metric system are Myanmar, Liberia and something called the US.

To find your height (or other things) in the metric system, the Google calculator is an easy option: type in "5 feet 8 inches in cm" and you'll get 172.72 centimeters.

In Spanish, you could say "Mido un metro 73 (centímetros)", "Mido 1.73" or something similar.
