The theory of language teaching for specific purposes approach has over 30 years in Brazil. Develop research on this approach is important for the teacher education area and, in particular, for Portuguese teachers in service in Brazilian Basic Education Mode of Technical Professional Education (TPE), as this type of education has, in the Portuguese teaching, the theoretical foundations that govern the conception of foreign language teaching for specific purposes (Magalhães, 2011). Considering this context, this research was developed with the aim of investigating the Language teacher knowledge on the specific purposes approach to Portuguese language teaching in the TPE. The theory that supports this work about language teaching for specific purposes was Ramos (2005); Dudley-Evans & St. John (2005); the Brazilian Technique and Professional Educational is based in Kunze (2009); Magalhães (2011); Pacheco (2012). To base the teacher education, specifically, the teacher education for work in TPE, Oliveira Junior (2008); Neto (2009). To develop this study, we had as subjects Portuguese teachers, belonging to (or belonged) to teacher staff of SEG schools SISTEMA DE ENSINO GAÚCHO of Santa Maria, RS, with classes for the several courses of technical formation of medium level, in Language and Communication subject. The results show that Portuguese teachers who are working in TPE, as did not possess knowledge of language teaching for specific purposes approach at undergraduate, had to seek information for their own account to supply the difficulties they faced in this teaching practice in the TPE mode. These teachers, even studying on this approaching teaching, still believe that being a teacher for specific purposes is a difficult task as it requires greater preparation than requires regular education.
