    I'm no longer in the class as I changed subjects earlier in the year but would be very interested to hear everyone's opinion on this teacher.

    So, while I was in there he frequently used "bas**rd", "s**t" and "bugger" at just about anything (not to insult students, though) - according to another student, after I left, one lesson he said "If you (the students) aren't going to do any work, you might as well get the f**k out!".

    At some Sixth Form (in particular college types), it is less formal and teachers generally tend to swear and treat students as full grown adults. At mine in the past quite a few of my teachers swore. We really didn't care so long as he teach properly, as well as helped us and not swear every minute or so.

    Swearing at the void is okay, if it's a nice teacher and in a tone that isn't angry, and the
    For instance "that vectors homework is taking so bloody long to mark" or "in the smc, they don't give a **** about your working".
    (real examples)
    It's not as good if it's about people.

    One of my teachers swear a lot in lessons. He literally can't finish a sentence without the F word in it.

    If it's not in a serious case, then at most sixth forms, teachers are less formal and swear much more compared to with younger students.
