READING: Hotel Chelsea (Advanced Group)

Hotel Chelsea

To say the Hotel Chelsea has an interesting history would be an understatement. Since the early twentieth century, the hotel has been home to dozens of celebrties. the fame of the building itself pre-dates its fame as a hotel; when it was constructed in 1883 as a block of flats. It was New York's tallest building. It became a hotel in 1095. Although prosperous at first, during a period of maladministration the hotel began to degenerate. It went baknrupt and changed hands in 1939. Its proactive new managers soon got it up and running again hard in the post - war era, its fame grew. 

As a part of the New York astistic scene, the hotel is irreplaceable. Its famous residents have included actors, artists, singers, writers and numerous anti-establishements figures. Frida Kahlo, Jean Paul Sartre, Jackson Pullock, Marilyn Monroe, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Madonna and Una Thurman all lived there for a while, and the hotel has been immortalised (and some would say overexposed) in dozens of songs, books and films (The Interpreter). Always a place of non- conformity, the hotel's management sometimes allowed penniless residents to pay for their rooms with artworks, some of which still hand in its lobby today. Its famous residents have found the hotel conductive to creativity, Arthur C Clarke and Jack Kerouac wrote, respectively, 2001: A Space Odyssey and On the Road while living in the hotel, and Madonna used it for a photo shoot for one of her books. Unfortunately, the hotel is also associated with artistic misbehaviour and tragedy. One of numerous examples of wild adventures behind its closed doors, the poet Dylan Thomas collapsed in room 205 of the hotel after partying too hard. He died four days later.

READING: Food: Fuel or Pleasure (Intermediate group)

The United States: Alice Freeman is a lawyer from San Diego

A) I think people are trying to improve their diets, but they are doing it the wrong way by following diets like the Atkins diet. Personally, I don't think it's very healthy to cut out entire groups of food like carbohydrates.

B) Not very often. I don't have the time or talent to cook full meals. I usually heat up a frozen meal or order a takeaway. 

C) Sometimes I get fast food for lunch. I have to admit that I love French fries. I feel terrible about it afterwards, but I don't do it very often. 

D) I usually have a bowl of cereal or toast for breakfast. For lunch I eat at a restaurant near my office. I perefer Japanese or Indian food. I usually eat rice with fish and vegetables, soup or sushi. I don't eat meat, but I ear a lot of fish. In the evening, I just have something light at home. 

E) I am trying to cut down on the amount of fat I eat. I'm also trying to eat more wholemeal bread. 

F) Not really. I enjoy certain kinds of food, but most meals are just fuel to keep me going through the day. 


France: Jacqueline Fabre is an IT consultant from Lyons

A) Yes, I cook every evening for my family. I often make soup or traditional French dishes like "boeuf bourguignon", which is a kind of beed and red wine stew, and then we have cheese and salad. It may seem a lot but we don't eat big portions. What's important for me is quality, not quantity. 

B) yes, I'm trying to eat less chocolate. 

C) I think people's diets are getting worse and worse. It's quite strange because we have a lot of information now about how bad fast food is for you. I'm afraid it's a problem in a lot of European countries. 

D) Not at home. I think most of the food I cook is healthy, but occasionally when I eat out I have something unhealthy, but it doesn't worry me. 

E) Yes, definitely. For me good meals with the family make me happy!

F) I'm quite traditional and I have three main meals a day. For breakfast, i like hot chocolate, and bread and butter with honey or jam. For lunch, I often eat in a restaurant with my colleagues. I usually have vegetables and meat ot fish but I love pasta and rice too. In the afternoon, I have fruit with biscuits or a piece of chocolate. In the evening, I have a proper meal with my family.
