Abstract
The research is designed to explore language environment and language planning in Xi’an. The paper reports the basic situation of language environment in Xi’an based on literature research and personal observation. The research findings show that the city has made impressive achievements in foreign language environment construction since official guidance was released in 2010. However, there are still some issues worth thinking about. The paper discusses some existing problems in current language environment from the points of official guidance and public language service. Since Xi’an is aiming at transforming from a provincial center to an international metropolis, language planning will face more challenges in the future. The paper also offers some suggestions for future language planning. The suggestions are in the following aspects: status and function planning, research on language planning, standardization and public language service.
