I used this sentence yesterday, " Get out of my class". A student suddenly pointed out saying isn't it in correct and further added that get out from my class should be the correct way to do it .

My question is which one is correct and in case both of them are, when is of used and when is from used?

1 Answer 1


Get out of is the correct expression, in this context. For e.g. we got out of the building as fast as we could, when we heard the fire-alarm.

Alternative word is leave/leaving--We left the classroom, after we were done with the assignment.

Please note that--get out of my class expression implies anger on the part of the instructor. You should instead use expression such as-please take it/your business outside.(if students are disturbing by talking over you)

    The expression get out from does exist in sentences such as, "Get out from under the mountain of debt you have accumulated!" But I agree with Rohit: get out of is correct in the original poster's question. Commented May 20, 2022 at 5:06
