Functional Language

"Functional language" is language that we use to perform various "functions" such as giving advice or apologizing. Functional language typically uses fixed expressions for each function –for example "if I were you" or "my suggestion is" in giving advice, and "it was my fault" or "please forgive me" in apologizing.
These pages list common expressions for each function, graded by level. Do have a look at upper-intermediate and advanced levels! (From EnglishClub)
