    A student of . . .

    Is it correct if someone says: " . . I was a student of Mr. x some years ago " . .

    or, should it be " . . . I was Mr. X's student some years ago "

    or, " Mr. X, I was his student . . . "

    The first two are correct; the third is wrong.

    Re: A student of . . .

    As Rover noted when he deleted your last post of thanks, Rezafo, separate posts of thanks are unnecessary. Simply click on Thank, as you did. If you post a separate 'thank you', it will appear in the list of new posts, and cause people to come to the thread expecting to read a follow-up question or additional comment.
