I hated Mr Swain's class when I was in High School because he was so tough, but now that I'm in University I realize that he just teaches like a Professor, which is good if you're going to University!

Ask him questions out of class and he'll be very helpful. Don't expect to be coddled!

A key to success:Firstly, he will make you feel stupid. ignore it. ask question after question after question about assignments, and he will tell you exactly what is he's looking for, esp things he didn't mention to the rest of the class.

He really challenges you as a student, which really helps for university. unfortunately i couldnt stand going to his class, 'cause he makes you feel like an idiot.

It is done this way, not because it's the right way, but because it is my way!

He is a really good teacher, which means he doesn't give free rides. If you actually want to learn English, take his courses. If you enjoy being illiterate, don't take them.

He's hard and he made me think. I may not like him, but I learnt a lot.Teaching is not a popularity contest.

He's a great teacher if you're a good student, and you actually want to get something out of his class.

Needs an attitude adjustment. There is no need to be patronizing when talking to students.
