    Lightbulb "of English" or "from English"?

    Hi! I just wanted to ask you if that's correct:

    I'm attending to my teacher's additional classes from (or of) english.
    It is ok? I don't whether to use "of english" or "from english", or maybe they're both correct? Please enlighten me, thanks

    Note my corrections above.

    Neither option is natural. Simply use "English classes". If you absolutely must use your construction, you could get away with "classes of English". You definitely can't use "classes from​ English".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
