AB - A space $X$ is functionally countable if $f(X)$ is countable for any continuous function $f\colon X \rightarrow {\mathbb {R}}$. We will call a space $X$ exponentially separable if for any countable family ${\mathcal {F}}$ of closed subsets of $X$, there exists a countable set $A\subset X$ such that $A\cap \bigcap {\mathcal {G}}\ne \emptyset $ whenever ${\mathcal {G}}\subset {\mathcal {F}}$ and $\bigcap {\mathcal {G}}\ne \emptyset $. Every exponentially separable space is functionally countable; we will show that for some nice classes of spaces exponential separability coincides with functional countability. We will also establish that the class of exponentially separable spaces has nice categorical properties: it is preserved by closed subspaces, countable unions and continuous images. Besides, it contains all Lindelöf $P$-spaces as well as some wide classes of scattered spaces. In particular, if a scattered space is either Lindelöf or ${\omega }$-bounded, then it is exponentially separable.
