    I'm concerned

    On this salary, I'm concerned that I wouldn't be able to afford accomodation
    Comment
    I'm writing to the employer who's offering me a praktikum but I want to convey that I don't think I could eat food and afford to pay rent on the pittance they are offering
    (Also encouraged are tips on whether or not this is an advisable point to make to a potential employer...) :)
    Thanks peeps

    Bei diesem Gehalt habe ich die Befürchtung, daß ich meine Miete nicht bezahlen kann.

    But I can't tell you if it's wise to say that...

    @noli - lol! Thanks for pointing that out! (the shame...)
    Thanks too Musikhippo, that sounds slightly preferable over Gibson's suggestion as I am talking about finding somewhere to rent, not that I've already got somewhere.
    Thanks to all - and re: whether it's wise to say it at all, I guess I'll find out when I hear back from him :)

    Die britische Antwort wäre:
    "Vielen Dank für das großzügige Angebot. Es wird mir zumindest ermöglichen unter einer der wunderschönen Brücken Ihrer Stadt zu schlafen und mir morgentlich einen Napf köstlichen Porridges in der Armenküche abzuholen. Alles weitere wird sich finden, sobald ich Ihnen hoffentlich eine, wenn auch unbedeutende, Hilfe sein kann.
    Looking forward to work in/with ...

    Yours sincerely

    Looloobelle Doe"
