Sentences used at the bank (part 1)


Hi everyone! In today's lesson, we're going to be learning some important phrases and vocabulary that you can use at the bank.


Withdrawing Money

The first phrase is "I'd like to withdraw 100 pounds, please." This means that you want to take some money out of your account. You can also say "I would like to withdraw 100 pounds, please." The person at the bank might ask you "how would you like the money?" This means that they want to know if you want the cash in coins, small bills, or large bills. You can say "in twenties, please" or "in coins, please" to let them know how you want the money to be given to you.


If you need to open a bank account, you will need identification. The person at the bank might ask you "do you have any identification?" This means that they want to see a form of identification like a passport, driver's license, or ID card. You can say "I have my passport" or "I have my driver's license" to show them the identification that you have.



I've lost a card or password

If you have a problem at the bank, such as a lost or stolen card, you can say "I've lost my bank card" or "I want to report a stolen card." If you've forgotten your internet banking password, you can say "I've forgotten my internet banking password." And if you've forgotten your PIN number, you can say "I've forgotten the PIN number for my card."

If you've moved to a new location, you can say "I'd like to tell you about a change of address." This means that you want to let the bank know your new address so that they can update their records. You will need to provide proof of your new address, such as a utility bill or lease agreement.
