Abstract

Today language policy and planning (LPP) issues have gone beyond the state borders entering the international arena. Governments seek to expand the sphere of their influence abroad, with language promotion being one of the exceedingly popular tools. The paper describes external language policy and planning as a new component of traditional LPP framework. The authors explore various types of external LPP by investigating the experience of the United Kingdom, the United States,the People’s Republic of China, and the Russian Federation. The background and the current priorities of external language policy and planning are described with regard to soft power concept and the countries’ foreign policies.
