Falando com Nativos: Clinton Davis

Hello! This is Eduardo Souto again coming to you from my office in the small city of Guariba - SP.

It's a pleasure to be here once again updating Você pode falar Inglês with some interesting content!

This is our 723th blog post, I really hope you enjoy it!

I'm going to introduce you a foreign friend of mine!

My name is Clinton Davis

I am 22 years old

I am originally from Pensacola, Florida, USA

I'm a graduate student at the University of Alabama, but with my programme I'm also a teacher's assistant, and next year I'll have my own class. I hope I can teach English abroad someplace once I finish up this bit of schooling.

Talking about music some of my favorites include Florence + the Machine, Imogen Heap, and well it's hard for me to think sometimes of who I like. In Portuguese I like Forfun and Mariza. Russian music I like Mel'nitsa. I have music in other languages too I like, but they might be a bit obscure.

I like Toni Morrison because of her masterful way with words and ability to evoke thought and really bring to light human issues. I also like Clarise Lispector, as she also can spin a story rather masterfully and capture well the emotion in a scene. There are books of hers I want to read. And since I don't want to be long I'll say only one more: John McWhorter. He's a linguist and his books (the ones I've read at least) really shine some light on the subject of language. Anyhow, I could talk books and authors all day, so just ask if you want recommendations.

I speak English mostly. I also know a bit of Spanish, Russian, and Korean, and I've picked up a little bit of Portuguese by talking with Brazilian and Portuguese people. I'm a fan of languages.

I like talking about books and authors, and also about ideas and concepts, and also about languages and cultures and travel and the like.

I am free to talk sporadically, with starting a grad program I'm not sure when I'll be around regularly, but mostly in the evenings after 5pm would be the best bet.

People can find me at Facebook and Skype.
