At the Foreign Exchange

When you go abroad, what's the thing you need most? Money, of course! You'll need to go to the bank to buy some traveler's checks. Then when you arrive at your destination, you'll have to go to a bank to cash the checks. Every bank has a foreign exchange department. However, you'll have to speak with the teller in English because he or she will probably not understand Chinese.
  You should, therefore, brush up on some of the words and phrases that are commonly used when changing money at a bank. For example, you might want to know what the day's exchange rate is, or if there are any handling charges, etc. Worried? Don't be. Our next lesson will give you a good idea of what you need to say and how to say it.

  你出国的时候最需要的东西是什么?当然是钱!你得先去银行买好旅行支票。等你到达目的地, 再到当地的银行将支票换成现金。每家银行都有外汇部门, 但是行员可能不懂中文, 所以你必须跟他们说英文。
  因此你该把银行兑换外币常用的字词短语温习一下。比方说, 你可能想知道当日的汇率或者银行是否收取任何手续费等等。担心吗?用不着。我们下一课会教你该说什么和怎么说。
