Sandra: Yes, I think so. But, I don’t have any U.S. dollars. Where can I change money? Can I do that here? Gustavo: You could, but I wouldn’t recommend it. The exchange rate is really high and so are the fees. I’ll take you to the bank tomorrow. ….. The next day, I picked Sandra up from her hotel and we went to a branch nearby. Bank clerk: What can I do for you? Sandra: I’d like to exchange some currency and to get some U.S. dollars. Bank clerk: Okay, how much would you like? Sandra: How much is one Euro worth? Bank clerk: The current rate is one dollar to .8 Euros. Sandra: In that case, I’d like 500 U.S. dollars. Bank clerk: Okay. That will be 400 Euros. Would you like that in large or small bills? Sandra: I’d like a mix of both, I’d like some change, too. Bank clerk: That’s no problem. Please sign here. That will be $300 in $20’s, $150 in $10’s, and $45 in $5’s and $1’s. And, here’s $5 in change: quarters, dimes, and nickels. Sandra: That’s perfect. Thanks a lot. Bank clerk: Is there anything else I can help you with? Sandra: No, that’s all. Thanks for your help. Bank clerk: It’s my pleasure. Have a nice day. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
