Craig Carton 'deserves another chance': Boomer Esiason from WFAN

Now that Craig Carton has been released from prison, he must return to the radio, according to his former WFAN colleague, Boomer Esiason.

The 51-year-old carton was released earlier from prison on Tuesday after serving a sentence of more than a year for 3½ years because of his role in ticket fraud which also made him lose his job at the radio station.

“He deserves another chance, in my eyes,” Esiason said at the WFAN on Wednesday. “Whatever problems we have after all this has gone down, they’re gone. As far as I’m concerned, they’re gone.”

Andrew Marchand of The Post reports that Carton may have a path back to WFAN now because Chris Oliviero, his former producer, runs the Entercom station in New York.

Carton was replaced by Gregg Giannotti and Esiason and Giannotti were expected to remain together, but other places could be open to Carton at the station.

Esiason said he heard from Carton shortly after he was released from prison.

“I got off the radio [Tuesday]”I saw a number appear on my screen,” Esiason said. “I thought,” Is this spam? What is this? I answered the phone, I said hello [and] I heard a very familiar voice say, “Hey, it’s me. I’m out.”

Cardboard release is not associated with a coronavirus pandemic.

“What I have heard is that Craig Carton is happy and relieved,” said Esiason. “He did everything he could in prison to reduce his sentence and try to get out as early as possible.”

The carton will enter a confinement or halfway house to complete the sentence, according to sources.

“Now the real work begins for him and it rebuilds his life,” Esiason said. “He paid his debt to the public.”

And Esiason hopes to hear Carton come back on the air.

“I’m sure he deserves a second chance, whether it’s here at our station or another station,” Esiason said. “He is too talented not to air somewhere.”

Esiason said he and Giannotti would remain a team and he did not expect to work with Carton again.

“Of course, when you talk about this show and move on and I’m here, maybe and most likely it won’t be here,” Esiason said. “But that doesn’t mean it’s not possible to be on the radio station for years in other places. But I’m glad he’s out and I’m glad he will get another chance.”

Is there an exam in Brazilian Portuguese?

Published

on






if you are studying Brazilian Portuguese more likely than European Portuguese, you might be wondering which exam you can work on. Most people are familiar with the Portuguese CAPLE system, which corresponds to the A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 and C2 format of the European CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) standard.

Although there are many crossovers between European Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese and they are essentially the same language, many people choose to focus on Brazilian Portuguese rather than European Portuguese. In most cases, if you’re planning to live in Portugal, you should probably focus on European Portuguese, as that’s what you’ll be in the most contact with. However, there are several reasons why you might decide that Brazilian Portuguese is the right choice for you.

The first and main reason if you are planning to move to Brazil is mainly for work or study. CELPE-Bras is the only language proficiency test recognized by the Brazilian Ministry of Education that may be required for a position or vacancy at a Brazilian university. Another reason could be that you don’t spend much time in Portugal and speak more Brazilians than Portuguese.

CELPE-Bras exam levels: Intermediate, Upper Intermediate, Advanced and Upper Advanced. They roughly correspond to B1, B2, C1 and C2. Once you have decided which level you want to test at (eg B2), the next step is to find a course that will take you to that level. Portuguese Pod101 e Portuguese semantics both offer content at this level, for example.

It is recommended to sign up for the test in advance or at least set a date for the test. You should also read about what the test includes, which is a 20 minute oral component and a 3 hour written component based on the texts you read and the video and audio you listen to.

Some people are tempted by Brazilian Portuguese as it seems to be easier than European Portuguese, but that is not a good reason to learn it instead of Portuguese Portuguese. In addition, if you plan to apply for citizenship in Portugal – for example, if you qualify after five years of residence in Portugal – you will need to submit Portuguese level A2, which is actually a level below the easiest level you can get through in CELPE-Bras: Intermediate.

If you are interested in Brazilian Portuguese but want to learn Portuguese as a world language, there is a book dedicated to this: Meeting point: Portuguese as a world language. You can also find Brazilian and Portuguese teachers on websites like Italki which can help you practice your conversation and correct it when you confuse the two. However, in general, most courses focus on one or the other, so you need to figure out how to learn and support both.
