Joe O’Hagan
Assistant Director of Studies

I'm the Assistant Director of Studies and I've been teaching English at International House Bristol for over 12 years now. Before that I was a secondary school English teacher in the UK and The Gambia and I also spent a year living and learning French in Paris, so I can remember what it feels like learning a language abroad.

I work closely with Pete (the Principal and DOS) to make sure students are getting the most out of their time in Bristol, inside and outside the classroom. I also train new and experienced teachers from other schools and I’m responsible for developing our teaching team here.

When I’m not working, running or walking in the hills, I love singing in two awesome Bristol community choirs. So when you come to IH Bristol, let me know if you want to sing something in English!
