Denúncia contra a escola BLI

Venho, por meio deste, formalizar minha denúncia contra a escola BLI Montreal, que frequentei no período de 31/07/2017 a 1º/09/2017, a quem possa interessar.

Iniciei meus estudos num grupo de nível B2 - Intermediário Avançado, após ter feito um exame oral inicial no primeiro dia. As aulas eram administradas em blocos, eu me inscrevi para três blocos de aulas por dia, um professor diferente para cada bloco.

Tive problemas logo na primeira semana com o professor Haroun, do segundo bloco. A aula era em grupo e, logo no primeiro dia (segunda-feira), ele não me deixava falar, expor minhas idéias, me cortando o tempo todo, priorizando somente uns alunos que eram seus preferidos. Me criticava, corrigindo meus erros, não gostava quando eu me expressava e procurava me ignorar na aula. Foi antipatia à primeira vista. Fiz reclamação à diretora de língua francesa, Elie.

Terça e quarta, ele pareceu melhorar um pouco, provavelmente a diretora Elie deve ter conversado com ele, quinta-feira, de novo o mesmo comportamento. Nova reclamação e uma carta que encaminhei ao diretor da escola, anexado neste e-mail.

Em nova conversa com Elie, ela me sugeriu que eu fizesse aula particular com outra professora, neste bloco. Acatei sua sugestão e ela me indagou o que eu gostaria de estudar com a Baya, que me daria aulas particulares. Eu respondi que já usava no Brasil o livro Alter Ego vol .5, níveis C1 e C2 e que teria interesse de prosseguir meus estudos neste livro, se possível. Ela concordou e assim foi feito. Na semana seguinte, no lugar de ter aulas com o Haroun, comecei a estudar com a Baya.

Gostei muito da nova professora. O problema de incompatibilidade parece ter sido resolvido e eu fiquei satisfeito, por poder usar o livro Alter Ego, nível avançado (C1 e C2).

Frequentei as aulas com a Baya, utilizando o livro, que por ser de nível avançado exigia que eu fizesse redações, preparasse apresentações orais, resumos escritos, dissertações, etc, ao qual me empenhei arduamente, e que foram elogiados pela professora..

No entanto, quando terminei o curso, ao receber o diploma, pude verificar uma nota 7 em "Competences" (nome do curso do segundo bloco) relativa às duas primeiras semanas, ou seja, uma semana com o Haroun e uma semana com a Baya. Achei a nota baixa e pedi a eles que abrissem esta nota, para saber como cada um me avaliou, o que me foi negado. Indignei-me também, porque esta nota deve ter sido em função da reclamação do Haroun que fiz na primeira semana. Assim, não temos direito nenhum de reclamar? Os professores podem agir da forma como bem entenderem e devemos aceitar tudo calados? Esta é uma questão que deixo aqui nesta denúncia.

Além disto, na quinta e última semana, tive outro problema, desta vez com a professora Ophélie, do terceiro bloco (ela substituiu a professora Miriam, excelente, por sinal, somente nesta última semana). Percebi que ela não estava dando chance para que eu participasse da aula (eram só dois alunos, eu e o Robin), tinha que me esforçar para poder me expressar, ela somente dava oportunidade para que o Robin se manifestasse, até que eu resolvi me calar e observar. Foram pelo menos vinte minutos, em que ela conversava e fazia perguntas ao Robin, ignorando-me o tempo todo. Irritado, saí da sala para ver se ela se tocava. Voltei e a mesma coisa. Até que chegou num ponto que eu bastante zangado, comecei a reclamar com ela de sua atitude em fingir que eu não existia. Foi o suficiente para que ela reclamasse com a diretora e me desse uma nota baixa no terceiro bloco que se denominava "Atelier de

Communication" (média 7,0, mas esta é uma média entre a nota que ela me forneceu e a nota que a Míriam, outra professora, muito competente por sinal, me deu). Pedi para que abrissem a nota para que eu pudesse verificar o que houve, mas me negaram a apresentar as informações.

Mais uma indignação. O professor está errado, eu reclamo e, por tê-lo feito, minha nota é diminuída consideravelmente?

As duas notas 7.0 do meu certificado têm como origem as reclamações que fiz. E eu não posso saber exatamente como os professores problema (Haroun e Ophélie) me avaliaram (isto é proposital, presumo). No meu retorno ao Brasil, solicitei à agência aqui no Brasil que interviesse a meu favor, mas mesmo assim a escola permaneceu impassível, sem alterar as notas e sem me fornecer maiores satisfações.

É por isto que resolvi encaminhar esta denúncia a quem possa interessar, expondo o caso de modo aberto e detalhado, juntamente com minha frustração e aborrecimento por ter frequentado a BLI Montreal.

Coloco-me inteiramente à disposição para esclarecer quaisquer dúvidas.

BLI MONTREAL

Uma experiência única! Foi tudo excelente ! Fiz muitos amigos, a equipe é maravilhosa e muito simpática! E para nós brasileiros temos a facilidade de ter atendimento em português, o que me ajudou muito antes e depois, quando cheguei! A Rayanne (brasileira que faz parte da equipe Bli) tirou todas as minhas dúvidas sobre o curso e me auxiliou em todo processo de matrícula, e quando cheguei me recebeu e sempre estava preocupada em saber como eu estava e se o curso estava correspondendo as minhas expectativas! Os professores foram incríveis também , não somente preocupados em nos ensinar o inglês, mas também com nosso bem estar! Eu escolhi a modalidade Intensive(30 lições por semana ) , pois só poderia ficar por 4 semanas no Canadá , período das minhas férias no Brasil, e mesmo sendo 4 semanas apenas, valeu muito a pena, meu inglês melhorou muito e me sinto mais motivada para continuar aprendendo e se tiver oportunidade quero voltar !
