    change

    Dear teachers,

    I need to change my dollars for/into English money.
    Can I say "I need to exchange my dollars for English money" ?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    Re: change

    That sounds fine to me.
    You could also say, "I need to change my dollars into English money (or just into Pounds)"

    I've tried to exchange my dollars into pounds, Buggles, but at the current rate of exchange I only receive ounces...never a full pound for my dollar!!!!! What's with that, Mate?

    Re: change

    Considering the rate at which the pound is plummeting, I'm surprised you got ounces. I would have expected you to get stones by now.
    If we'd joined the Euro, you'd be getting kilograms.

    And if I was in Japan, I'd have a 'yen' for some sushi!
