    I don't work yet as I am a student.

    Is the following sentence grammatically correct and natural?
    I don't work yet as I am a student.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: I don't work yet as I am a student.

    Plenty of people are students and also have a job so, although your sentence is grammatically OK, you can't really suggest that the reason you don't have a job is simply because you're a student.

    I wouldn't give one as the reason for the other. I would simply say:

    I don't work/I don't have a job. I'm a full-time student.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
