Agni sent me the useful tip below: (You can substitute Sparkasse with the name of your own bank)

I do not know why but when you attend Language Course, there you can learn all except the most important and useful things e.g. how to block your lost or stolen credit/debit card . But because of this problem I realised that my German is not as bad as I thought. Even when the bank’s language is very complicated. For all who would like to know how to do it the most important sentence is:

Ich möchte meine EC-Karte (SparKasse-Karte) sparren lassen. (sparkasse tele: (+49) 116 116).

Good luck!!!!

Sparkasse – is the most popular bank in Germany and it is little bit like home/regional/local bank. The region has some benefits from the bank.


Thanks Agni!
