ESL Banking Lesson

by www.elcivics.com

Banks are a safe place to keep your money. They use security guards, security cameras, alarms, and vaults to protect your cash. Banks offer financial services like checking accounts, savings accounts, loan departments, and investment plans. They are a good place to get rolls of coins, cashier's checks, money orders, and savings bonds. Almost all banks have ATM machines outside their buildings and some banks even have drive-thru windows.
