IRA and CD ,which one is better?

Tuesday, October 4th 2016

    How about the expression “Cash a check” Alex? Is it still in used in Cadada or The States? Technology changes almost everything, even language.

    “Every month I go to the bank to cash my check and pay some bills in Mexico City. But I have to “pay a comission” because I’m not a bank client; I mean. I do not have a bank account.

    Once I opened an account; no sooner had I done so than the bank issued a debit card. I am not interested in plastic money because I don’t want to take chances, so I cancelled it. As you know, your bank card can be cloned at practically any time. To make matter worse, plastic money is not always available for you. So, what’s technology good for?”

    By the way Alex, do the words comission, cancel, and client belong to this particular context? Did I use them properly?

    Finally, what do you call all those things that you can do in a bank? “Bank operations / transactions”?

    Thanks a bunch for this awesome lesson Alex.

    P.D. You explain everything with great ease.

      Hey Regino,

      The things you do in a bank are called transactions. Client and cancel definitely belong in this context. I haven’t heard of paying a commission to a bank, though. To me, a commission is something a sales person who works for a company makes when they make a successful sale. (Ex. “I make 5% commission from every sale.”)

      Thursday, October 6th 2016

        As far as I’m concerned “commissiom” can be applied to a bank too. Does Americans call it “bank interest”? By the way what is standard bank interest in Canada and USA?

        De nada. É a mesma coisa que senha em francês… ao menos em Quebec.
        (I’m kidding, emrahbulduk, please don’t take this serious :)

        Thursday, October 13th 2016

Hi, Alex. Thank you for this great explanation about bank vocabulary. You are the best! Here in Brazil, the bank tellers went on strike. Many banks are closed since last month. I wish you all the best and I will see you next time! Bye!

Tuesday, October 4th 2016

    Really? That sounds terrible. I didn’t hear about that on the news networks in Canada. I hope you’re doing okay!

    Thanks for checking out my video, Julio Cesar. All the best!

    Tuesday, October 4th 2016

Awesome Alex, It’s so important understand this specific vocabulary, I’ve heard many times from brazilians going abroad and face some problems at the local banks due don’t comprehend the teller. Congrats!!

Tuesday, October 4th 2016

    Thanks, Fabio. I hope this helps students and travelers!

Tuesday, October 4th 2016

    Thanks for studying with us, Carlos! I appreciate it.

    Thursday, October 6th 2016

Hello, Alex.
It was a great and useful lesson. In your talking and also along the quiz you have used the term “savings account.” At first it seems weird because the word “savings” works as an adjective, so I looked it up and I saw there is an expression to that in my language that is very close to that related to “saving account.” In English, do these two expressions can be used interchangeably?
Thank you in advance!

Tuesday, October 4th 2016

    Hi Cesar,

    Yes, you can use both phrases. However, if you just use the word alone, you should use “savings.” Example: “My savings are low.”

    Wednesday, October 5th 2016

thank you so much Alex!!! Very useful vocabulary!! Take care.

If you invest your tuppence
Wisely in the bank
Safe and sound
Soon that tuppence,
Safely invested in the bank,
Will compound
And you’ll achieve that sense of conquest
As your affluence expands
In the hands of the directors
Who wisely invest as propriety demands

the queue.. funny word… also its spelling is funny… i’ll start to use this word instead of “get in line.” .. get in the queue…. sounds quite better to me.

Thursday, October 6th 2016

    The British will love you for using it.

    Thursday, October 6th 2016

Thank you so much.

Thursday, October 6th 2016

    You’re very welcome.

    Thursday, October 6th 2016

I think ” joined account” is corect too. Because joined play a role as an adj before A Noun, isn’t it?

Friday, October 7th 2016

    The correct terminology is definitely “joint.” I’ve never seen “joined account” listed on anyone’s bank statements. :)

    Tuesday, October 11th 2016

What’s the difference between a debit card and a credit card?

Friday, October 7th 2016

    You get a debit card from your bank to pay for things from your chequing account, and you get a credit from Visa, Mastercard, etc.

    Tuesday, October 11th 2016

Thank you, Alex! It is very useful. You are the best teacher!
