  1. Dinero= Money
    Monedas= Coins
    Tarjeta De Credito = Credit Card
    Efectivo = Cash

    Money is important where ever you go! lol

    1. lol. You are correct! Money is one of the most important word to know. Where to get the money from, however, is probably slightly more important!
      These should help:

      bank – banco
      automated teller machine (ATM) – cajero automático
      money exchange – cambio de moneda

What do you think?
