So, first, explain this situation to your parents. Then with them take this issue to the school administrators. To both of them emphasize that your EDUCATION is being affected and the bully's behavior is disruptive to the entire class and the teacher is not handling the problem. This is a quantifiable affecteffect of his bullying that adults should be of grave concern to adults.

The teacher is the person of authority in the classroom. She should be dealing with the situation, not you. If she is not, then she is not doing her job.

The teacher should not tolerate you or anyone else being interrupted, cut off, mocked, ridiculed, or belittled when answering or asking a question during class. Nor should she be tolerating any other disruptive behavior that affects you or the rest of the class.

Since the teacher is unwilling or incapable of exerting her authority to address the situation, you need to take the issue to your parents and her superiors.

In my opinion, you need to be calm, objective, and emphasize a QUANTIFIABLE EFFECT of the bullying - that it is affecting your education and your ability to learn (and apparently everyone else's as well). If you say, "He's being mean to me", your concerns will likely be dismissed (even though he certainly is). If you emphasize that your EDUCATION and that of every other student in the classroom is being affected by the behavior of the bully, then adults will take notice as this is, I would think and hope, important to them.

But in order to make this case, you need to be sure that you are not contributing to the situation. This means - as others have already stated - that you stay calm and do not engage or respond to his taunts. If you are answering/asking a question in class and he interrupts, stop. Wait for him to finish speaking, then calmly pick right back up again where you left off. If he interrupts again, repeat the process. When he stops, you pick up again, perhaps saying, "Continuing where I left off..." or "As I was saying...". If the teacher accuses you of causing the disruption, simply point out that you're just trying ask/answer a/the question, nothing more.

So, first, explain this situation to your parents. Then with them take this issue to the school administrators.

What should be happening is: The bully should be told by the teacher that his behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. If he continues, the teacher should remove him from the classroom. If it still continues, his parents should be notified. If it still continues he might be given what we in the U.S. call detention, or if the two of you were here in the U.S., (I don't know how things work there), he might be expelled for a period of time (not allowed to attend school), or even permanently.

Since the teacher is not taking these steps, the school administrators need to insist that she do so. Your parents should contact the administrators and insist that they deal with the situation. If that doesn't work, then what a parent would do here in the U.S. is have their attorney get involved and send the school administrators a letter reminding them of their responsibilities under the law.

I don't know how things like this work in Austria, and whether your school is public or private, but one way or another your parents are paying the school for your education, either indirectly through taxes or directly if it is a private school. By not dealing with the situation the school is depriving you and your parents of your right to the education your parents have paid for.

This is unacceptable. The school administrators SHOULD be responsive to your concerns, but if not, your parents need to apply pressure on them until they take action to address the situation.

It needs to be made clear to the bully that there will be steadily escalating consequences for his behavior that will increase until he stops doing what he's doing. And, as someone else said, if he threatens you or gets physical, then the police need to be involved.
