Marina Ossovskaya
Center Exams Manager & Office Co-ordinator

Hi, my name is Marina and I am from the beautiful city of St Petersburg in Russia.

I have been living in the UK since 2007. I joined International House Bristol in 2008.

Whilst Russian is my first language, I really enjoy the written English word and thoroughly love a good detective novel, my favourite novelist being Patricia Cornwell. I am also a devotee of all the detective series on TV such as ‘Midsomer Murders’, ‘Poirot’, ‘Maigret’, ‘Death in Paradise’ as well as classic British sitcom series such as ‘Last of the summer wine’, ‘Are you being served’ and ‘Open all hours’. I also find yoga to be a great joy as well as cooking and eating fabulous simple healthy foods. YUMMY!!!

My job entails mixing with many nationalities and coordinating English exams for the students here at International House – a great opportunity to meet more interesting people! I hope you enjoy your studies at International House!
