Situation one:

You are living in Côte d’Ivoire and you must open a bank account.

  1. 1. Explain to the teller that you need to open a checking account and have a deposit of 150 dollars.

  2. 2. Ask him / her what you need to do to open a checking account (forms, id?). The teller should tell you what the advantages of a checking account are (free checking, ATM services, online banking etc.)

  3. 3. You also want to cash 300 dollars in traveler’s checks, deposit 250 dollars in a savings account, and get 50 dollars back in cash.

  4. 4. Ask him about the exchange rate, from dollars to euro or CFA (Communauté Financière Africaine).
