The LMD System: A Problematic of an ESP Perspective


MASCARA University



            The Algerian decision makers seem to call for urgent implementation of ESP courses in all faculties, across all departments, including mostly all specialities at both levels; graduation and post-graduation. However, while the English department is supposed to be responsible to run foreign language teachers’ training programs, ESP teaching methodology still display a real absence at both the “LMD” and traditional systems. This paper aims, therefore, at seeking the main issues of training the future ESP teachers within an Algerian context, fundamentally at the English department of Abou Bekr Belkaid University, Tlemcen.

            In this respect, one should think of how to bridge the existing gap between the requirements of different situations and the English department. And how would it be possible to plan pre-service ESP teacher training as a key to cross this bridge for a better LMD professionalization?

Key words: LMD system, ESP, university programs, training.
