The purpose of this study was to examine how students used politeness and impoliteness in their classroom interactions. The study looks into the different sorts of politeness and impoliteness talk those students employ in class. This study was a descriptive qualitative study. The students in the English Education Department at STKIP Muhammadiyah Bone in the fourth semester were the focus of this study. The researcher used an observation checklist as well as audio recordings. Researchers did a few steps to investigate the records, specifically; records reduction, statistics display, and conclusion drawing and verification. The researcher used Brown and Levinson (1987)’s politeness concept particularly; bald-on record, positive politeness, negative politeness, and stale-document and Culpeper (1996)’s impoliteness principle, specifically; bald on the report, positive impoliteness, negative impoliteness, sarcasm or mock politeness, and withhold politeness. The resulting finding of this research indicated there were three types of politeness talk used by the students in classroom interaction. They were bald on record, positive politeness, and negative politeness. From 149 of students’ utterances, 2 of them identified as bald on record, 139 as positive politeness, and 6 as negative politeness. Positive politeness dominated the use of politeness talk by the students in classroom interaction. Meanwhile, there were three types of impoliteness talk used by the students in classroom interaction. They were bald on record, positive impoliteness, and negative impoliteness. From 11 of students’ utterances, 4 as bald on record, 6 of them identified as positive impoliteness, and 1 as impoliteness in negative. Positive impoliteness dominated the use of impoliteness talk by the students in classroom interaction. From 3 groups divided in the classroom, the first group used the most politeness talk which was 61 utterances. Meanwhile, the group which used the most impoliteness talk was the third group that uttered 5 utterances.
