Wich I, as a non natural english speaking person, also get confused by.
Is there a rule as to when its off or of?
Like "i before e, except after c"?

"Of" is a preposition and is used in a whole host of circumstances that you basically, as a language learner, just need to memorize, I'm afraid.

Harry, I am a native English speaker and I still get confused when thinking about one off vs one of. That's a slang thing though.
