GERMAN

1. Ein Mann und eine Frau unterhalten sich über Banken.

2. Welche Bank wird die Frau wählen?

3. Ich überlege, ein neues Bankkonto zu eröffnen, weil ich einen Teilzeitjob anfange.
Welche Bank denkst du wäre gut?

4. Nun ja, es kommt darauf an, wonach du suchst. Sowohl Bank A als auch Bank B, zum
Beispiel, haben viele Filialen und Geldautomaten, also findest du es vielleicht
praktischer, um Überweisungen zu tätigen.

5. Aber Bank A berechnet mir jedes Mal eine Gebühr, wenn ich ihre Geldautomaten
benutze. Bank B erlaubt mir, tagsüber an Werktagen ihre Geldautomaten gebührenfrei
zu benutzen.

6. Ich verstehe. Apropos Gebühren für Geldautomaten, Bank C ist immer gebührenfrei,
aber sie haben nicht so viele Geldautomaten.

7. Ach so, aber ich mag es nicht so recht, dass sie nicht so viele Geldautomaten haben...

8. Übrigens, Bank D ist am Besten in Bezug auf die höchsten Zinssätze.

9. Wirklich? Aber ich habe vor, dieses Bankkonto nur für das Geld, das ich durch den
Teilzeitjob verdienen werde, zu benutzen, und ich habe nicht vor, viel Geld einzuzahlen.

10. Dann solltest du die mit vielen Geldautomaten und geringen Gebühren wählen.

11. In Ordnung, danke für deine Ratschläge.

1. A man and a woman are talking about banks.

2. Which bank is the woman going to choose?

3. I am thinking about opening a new bank account because I am starting a part-time job.
Which bank do you think is good?

4. Well, it would depend on what you are looking for. For example, both Bank A and Bank B
have many branches and ATMs so you might find it more convenient to do money
transactions.

5. But Bank A charges me every time I use their ATMs. Bank B allows me to use their ATMs
at no charge during the day on weekdays.

6. I see. Talking about ATM fees, Bank C is always free of charge, although they don't have
that many ATMs.

7. I see, but I don't quite like the fact that they don't have many ATMs...

8. By the way, Bank D is the best when it comes to the highest interest rates.

9. Are they? But I am planning to use this bank account only for the money I will be making
from the part-time job, and I am not planning to put a lot of money in it.

10. Then you should choose the one with a lot of ATMs and low charges.

11. All right, thanks for your advice.
