Functions are the purposes for which you use English. Examples: suggesting, inviting, disagreeing, expressing interest.

Exponents are the way you express functions. Examples: suggesting: Shall we...? Let’s... Why don’t we...?

A course with a functional approach is a sequence of functions and their exponents. It does not present grammar as a graded sequence, as in the [structural-situational approach].
