Abstract: French for Specific Purposes (FSP) courses prove to be challenging for both learners and teachers because they have to be tailored to audiences with increasingly specialized needs who are concerned, to various degrees, about their integration in a French-speaking professional work environment. This paper will respond briefly to the main questions regarding the design and teaching of a French course for liberal arts professions which was created primarily for Canadian students interested in the legal, medical and educational fields, but is also open to students who need an extra language course in order to meet their program requirements. The designer of a second-language course that proposes specific training complementary to general linguistic training needs to carefully determine the course's learning objectives and teaching strategies, to create a syllabus which responds to multifunctional needs, and to choose evaluation techniques that are more suitable for learners who will eventually work in an intercultural environment.
