Whether you want a loan to buy a car, pay for school, buy real-estate or something else, banks often offer to help you find the loan that’s perfect for you.

Very convenient, right? Well, when you borrow money, it’s important to know how loans work. With a better understanding of loans, you can make better decisions about debt and understand how to avoid it. Learn how loans work and how to talk about your experience and opinions about loans in English.

Credit rating is an evaluation made by a credit rating agency of the debtor’s ability to pay back the debt and the likelihood of default. Why should it matter to you? Well, your credit rating is basically the same as your credit score. It essentially tells lenders how risky it is to lend you money. Your credit score is a numerical expression that banks use to determine whether you qualify for credit – and if so, how much interest they’ll charge you.
