    A: My term deposit matures this week. Could you transfer the money to my web-saving account on the day it matures?
    B: How much money do you want to transfer?
    [The bank teller is unlikely to ask this. When you say "the money", you imply "all of the money". Generally, you'd need to renew your term deposit with the smaller amount of money]
    A: I'd like to transfer $100. [Your cash withdrawal of $100 is a separate transaction from their transferring the $100 from your term deposit to your web-saving account, so it's probably irrelevant at this stage. It would be understood that once it's in your ordinary day-to-day account, you can withdraw it whenever you like.]
    I don't know what you mean by "the left one".

    Smile Re: my account is going to be matured

    Dear Raymott,

    Many thank you for your kind hlep

    "the left one"

    For example, there are $5000 in my account ant it matures soon.
    I want to transfer $1000 to my websaving when it matures,
    and for the $4000 I want to take out in cash.

    So, when I tell the bank teller can I say,,,

    ⓐFor $1000, please transfer to my websaving account and for the remainders (means $4000) I want to take out in cash.
    ⓑFor $1000, please transfer to my websaving account and for what the left I want to take out in cash.

    How should I say?
    ( I'm always confused by,, what the left, remainders, leftover... )

    Yes, but your account hasn't matured yet. The teller can only transfer the whole $5000 into your web-saving account when it matures. You can then, whenever you want to, withdraw the $4000. The teller cannot transfer $1000 to your web-savings account and put the $4000 in the bottom drawer for you to drop by and pick up later.
    The teller could only perform the transaction you are asking for if you were there on the maturation date. But you are not.

    But to the grammar:
    I want to transfer $1000 to my web-saving account, and take the remainder in cash.
    ... and takes what's left over in cash.
    ... and takes what's left in cash.


    Here's some money. Please buy the items on this list. If there's any money left over, buy yourself an ice cream or something.
