    "is regarded" vs "is considered"

    Hi,
    Do these expressions mean the same, please?

    He is regarded an excellent teacher by his students.

    He is considered an excellent teacher by his students.

    How about the level of formality, please?
    Thanks.

    Hi jctgf

    Yes, the meanings are basically the same, but I would not omit 'as' after 'regarded'.

    - He is regarded as an excellent teacher by his students.

    - He is considered (to be) an excellent teacher by his students.

    - He is thought of as an excellent teacher by his students.
    Would it be okay to say this instead?

    Exclamation Re: "is regarded" vs "is considered"

    The basic meaning of think, consider and regard are the same. So I think,there is no wrong if thought is used here. But I will say: He is thought to be an excellent teacher by his students.
