16 11 2011

Our new language assistant is called Alex Johnson.  We met him at the beginning of October when he came to our school for the first time. If you want to know more about him, this is what some students can tell you:

He is 23 years old.  He is single.  He has got blue eyes.  He has got long hair and a beard.  He is left-handed.  He is very tall and he looks like Marc Gasol.  He is very handsome and interesting and he doesn’t have a girlfriend!

   Marc Gasol   Who is who?  Alex Johnson

He is from Pasadena (Los Angeles - USA), but now he is living in Oviedo.  He has two brothers and one sister.  One of his brothers lives in Boston.  He plays the ukelele and the clarinet.  Last year he was a language assistant in Zaragoza.

He likes rock and heavy.  He also likes flamenco and playing basketball. He supports Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers.  He likes Metallica.

Some of the plants in his state, California, are not native from that area, so he likes Asturias because it’s very green. He also likes our food.

What else do you know about him?  Help us complete his description and write your post!
