Student or Learner
I'm really confused right now.
Does "combining work and study" mean "work and study at the same time"?
I mean, there are many student in the UK who study at University and work somewhere to pay their fees. Here I can I say they combine work and study. But I'm not sure if it's fine to say they "work and study at the same time". The problems is it sounds to me like these actions are simultaneous. It's like they're reading a book or listening to a professor and working.
Can you suggest me other ways to express my idea, if my options don't really work.
I hope you see my confusion.
Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
Not a teacher nor a native speaker.
I think your sentence using combine conveys the meaning very clearly. Even if you say at the same time I don't think you would be misunderstood. I think the concept of students who also earn is common enough for people to know what you mean.
