Abstract

In this paper, together with the case study of Indonesian Chinese teachers’ language life, we investigate their language ecology from three aspects: personal language ability, family language life and social language communication. The investigation reveals that the language ecology of Chinese teachers in Indonesian is not optimistic. There is a serious crisis in the survival and development of the Chinese language. It is mainly manifested as follows: the aging trend of Chinese teachers’ composition, the decline of Chinese ability among young teachers, the narrowing trend of the Chinese using scope, the weakening trend in Chinese intergenerational transition, the unipolar trend of social language and so on. Besides the impacts of historical era and social environment, this kind of unbalanced phenomena is due to national policy and the unequal development of the national cultures. On the basis, this paper proposes constructive suggestions combined with influencing factors of Chinese education and Chinese developing trend.
