Young Learner Courses

Our Young Learner courses will get your child talking, understanding, reading and writing – not just listening to teachers talking on and on about grammar! We know that grammar is important, of course, so that kids can use English accurately but first they need practice in using English

Business Courses

Chattogram Language Institute is the expert in the city at designing courses specially designed to meet your business needs. Teaching courses both at our own premises in Mehedibagh or at your offices if you prefer, we offer small class sizes so that you and your team get individual attention!

Speaking English Courses

You can walk down any busy street in Chattogram and find adverts for SPOKEN ENGLISH courses at coaching centers. But when you register for classes, you discover that the only person in the classroom speaking is the teacher! The students get no practice and never build their confidence!

Come and get the whole English language experience!

Mark Bartholomew

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.

Come and meet him at Chattogram Language Institute!
