Hello! My name is Amanda and I am responsible for the IELTS exams which happen once or twice a month. I have settled in Bristol having grown up near London, then going to Brighton uni to study French and linguistics. During university I spent 8 months teaching English in France. I then spent the first 10 years of my working life in Brighton organising adult education language classes.
Before coming to Bristol I worked in France in the mountains where I could snowboard and Italy in the summer. I also had the holiday of a lifetime in Australia and New Zealand.
I am very happy in Bristol. It is great for live music so I go to lots of gigs. I love cooking and eating and Bristol has so many diverse restaurants and food events. I also love hot air balloons,so the ballon fiesta is an annual highlight for me.
I hope you come to visit our wonderful city
