Meeting Students' Communication Needs [and] Functional/Notional Examples in Spanish.
Marckel, Beverly; McKay, Carol L.
An approach to foreign language instruction was worked out to meet the needs of high school students who were preparing to participate in an international exchange program with French students. The approach uses a combination of the notional-functional syllabus and the regular grammar and vocabulary lessons. Examples in French are provided suggesting ways in which grammatical structures and vocabulary can be practiced by using role play, simulations, attempts to express an idea in many different ways, and picture talk. The examples are listed according to functional and grammar concepts. In the second part of the article, examples are provided in Spanish for practicing structure and vocabulary according to function, and for role playing and expressing an idea in many ways. (AMH)
