High Season: English for the Hotel and Tourist Industry by Harding and Henderson is an excellent textbook in the field of ESP teaching. What makes it particularly good is the fact that each of the 12 units of study included are clearly and equally divided into the following categories: TOPIC, LISTENING, SPEAKING,READING ,WRITING, LANGUAGE STUDY, WORD STUDY, ACTIVITIES. The communicative approach is made evident throughout the book as is suggested by the activities proposed and the functional approach given to the language study section. I have worked with this book in my English courses in Oaxaca, which are oriented towards people working in the tourist industry. My students have found it to be a very useful and enjoyable way to learn the English they need for their jobs.
