I am a student, but sometimes a bit naughty by asking too many silly questions, and my teachers have to stay with me after classes are over.
On FxxeBook, I found some people say these to their teachers:
"No more in your class" and "I will always be your student"
I tried to join the two sentences toegther:
"Even if I am no more in your class, but I will always be your student"
Does this sound good to teachers?

    In the real world these days, no. The young will eventually know more than the original teacher, and they could even become a teacher. – ʇolɐǝz ǝɥʇ qoq Jan 27 '15 at 19:58

"No more in your class" sounds like a Twitterism -- an archaic or slightly awkward usage that has fewer letters, so it's more likely to fit into a "tweet" on Twitter. Or maybe it's a poetical meme that's going around that I don't know about, since I'm not on FB.

To join the concepts, I'd say, "Though I'm no longer in your class, I will always be your student."

  • Hi A.Beth. Does it make sense if someone says "I will always be your student" to his teacher? Why do people use future tense to express a feeling or something that is currently happening. I am looking for some similar questions on ELL. – kitty Jan 27 '15 at 20:53
  • It's kind of a sidelong way of saying, "I will always respect you," basically, by invoking the teacher/student relationship. – A.Beth Jan 28 '15 at 22:53

Although A.Beth has already posted a very good answer I'd like to add the following.

"Why do people use future tense to express a feeling or something that is currently happening"

"I will always love you!" or "I will never do drugs.".

It's meant to be like a promise to go on with something/feeling/attitude/habit... (forever).
You could also say:

"I am your student now and I will be your student in the future."

The fact that the teacher seems to be very good and honestly appreciated, makes a person realize that (s)he will always be the teacher's student, no matter what will happen. Therefore the student is already sure what his feelings in the future will be like.
