Chattogram Language Institute
Come and get the whole English language experience!
Mark Bartholomew was born and brought up in England. After doing undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Psychology at the Universities of Keele and Oxford, he made a sudden about-turn, moved to Istanbul and started teaching English.
After gaining a Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults (DELTA) from the University of Cambridge, he pursued his career with British Council in Greece, Sri Lanka, Saudi Arabia, Morocco and, finally, Bangladesh. Now with a Master’s degree in Education (from the University of Sheffield) to his credit, Mark arrived in Chattogram, where he was Director of British Council.
Later, he took over the British Council teaching and exam operations nationwide, but he never forgot his favourite place in the country: Chattogram!
Now, after a long and prestigious career with organisations as different as The Open University of Maharashtra, Saudi Electricity Company, BRAC University and University of Cambridge, Mark is back in his beloved Chattogram.

I’ve had this honor to work with Dr. Mark, Former Director of British Council, Chittagong. He carries an extraordinary sense of professionalism. He is adaptive, caring and a great career advisor. Any organization would be blessed to have him aboard.

I soon discovered Mark’s excellence as an English language teacher, his magnetic personality capable of mesmerizing students, and his excellent sense of humour that made his language teaching so much popular. Now it’s nearly twenty years that I have known Mark, and even today I can confidently say I have not come across any better ELT professional in my life.
