The necessity of foreign language learning for professional purposes is not an invention of the modern age. Long before official teaching theories appeared, people needed foreign languages for workplace efficiency. In time, due to changing socioeconomic conditions, a formal scheme of language learning became necessary. Although it varies with regard to learning natural languages, this article aims to trace the evolution of job-related language teaching in relation to teaching French. The variety of teaching goals, emphasis on specific competences, learner considerations, as well as the sheer number of teaching conceptions all prove that French teaching methodologists are very active in terms of linguistics and didactics. Moreover, the development of a successful training offer requires the knowledge and awareness of what LSP is. The course writer able to define and understand LSP, is best placed to ascertain the learners’ needs and find an appropriate pedagogical solution in terms of approach, contents and tools. The present article will therefore deal with educational concepts inherent in LSP training organization and designing.
