And what does she do with it? Normally, in English, we say she IS a meter and a half (tall). ;) (unless maybe...she's holding a meter stick? lol)

It could be a phrase out of context, consider the previous sentence (maybe): "How much rope does Ana have?" ... ... Ea are un metru și jumătate.

good point! (I missed it, same as the course gurus, our speech pattern is with to have, that we use also for age, "he/she/it is five" = "el/ea are cinci ani", hehe)

In English we say metre ;)

Or even we say four foot eleven, or four feet and eleven inches occasionally... Do the American's describe their height in metres? Most English adults don't, though it is creeping up the age groups due to teaching in schools...

It's also said, "She is one and a half meters."

Se vede superficialitatea si slaba pregatire a celor care au alcatuit acest curs, este imposibil sa cazi de acord cu ei, dictarile sunt multe din ele incorecte, cunoasterea ambelor limbi e deficitara, cei care au coordonat si au corectal lucrarea au facut-o in scopul de a-si face reclama si a primi comenzi platite (una din aceste persoane, la o observatie facuta de mine a remar5cat ca ar fi absurd sa am pretentia sa cer ca un lucru facu gratis sa fie si bine executat).

I am confused. How would you say "she is a metre and a half tall "? Ea are un metru si jumătate - presumably does mean just she has a metre and a half of something?

Ea are un metru jumate înălţime (I just asked a Romanian) inaltime = height
