My teacher answered "from" but the usual expression is "with". Is it possible to use "from" and would there be difference in the meaning if use "with"? Also, did I punctuate my sentences correctly?
the forever student of this forum,
It's definitely "with". I wouldn't feel comfortable putting "from" as it just doesn't sound right to me.
