Dear teacher, thanks for answering me, but I have this from Krahnke, Karl book "Approaches to Syllabus Design for Foreign Language Teaching."
A sample unit of the notional functional syllabus:
What's the matter?
· Talking about sickness.
· Making a suggestion
· Accepting or rejecting a suggestion
· Making a request
· Agreeing to a request.
The question now is:
Can I say that all of these mentioned above are functions to the notion of the lesson which is "what's the matter?"
So, the context or the notion is the whole unit, and we can see it in the title of the unit. And the content should tackle the functions needed?
Another question: should all of the above points be as a part of a conversation?
