Abstract

This paper aims to deal with the striking problem: homogenization of China’s public foreign language education policy. It indicates that the government has not formulated special and diversified public foreign language education policies and plans to eliminate or minimize the drawbacks in the current situation. After reflecting on some relevant disadvantages, the author propose corresponding countermeasures from the perspective of language planning to achieve an ecological balance, by advocating diversification, updating outlook, implementing multilingualism and rectifying public foreign language education environment; and further point out that the self-confidence in culture is an important direction to realize the sustainable development of public foreign language education in the context of China. This study provides a very useful reference for language planning and design of public foreign language policy reform.
