Abstract: This study aims at identifying the difficulties of learners of French for Specific Purposes in Ghana: a case study of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology School of Business. The problem that led us into doing this research is to know why learners, having gone through the French for Communication course in the first-year and French for Specific Purposes in the second year are unable to develop the technical know - how of the French language and put it to work at their workplaces. This shows that the objective of the French course especially the Business French been taught in the second year is not being fully achieved. This research is in the field of French for Specific Purposes at the School of Business, KNUST supervised by Dr. (Mrs.) Lebene Tettey. The thesis seeks to identify the difficulties of learners; the weakenesses in the methods and approaches used by lecturers in this domain and finally finds strategies to solve the identified challenges. The data was collected from students at the KNUST School of Business and lecturers at the Department of Modern Languages in the form of questionnaires and interviews respectively. Our results validated the assumptions that the program is not well defined. It lacks adequate textbooks. In addition, the technological equipment for teaching this course is not also enough. All these put together could be a source of difficulty for learners.
