Functionally Based Communicative Approaches to Language Teaching
Functional linguistics serves as a perspective from which to gain insight into the key sociolinguistic concepts of communicative competence, intelligibility, and model, the nature of English language use in nonnative contexts, and the underlying framework of communicative approaches to language teaching. It further provides a theoretical basis for relating the practical concerns of materials and methodology design to learner needs and the sociocultural context in which the learning occurs. This link between theory and practice is achieved when materials identified as communicative are examined with respect to their functional basis.
