On September 7, 2013, delivering a speech at the Nazarbayev University in Kazakhstan, President Xi Jinping appealed to Asian and European countries to jointly build " the silk road economic belt". The Chinese government attaches great importance to building a new "Silk Road" economic zone. With unique geographical advantage, rich cultural heritage and rich tourism resources, Xi'an attracts much more attention in the background of "the silk road economic belt". While there are many countries take part in the new "Silk Road" economic zone, barrier-free communication is the fundamental prerequisite to develop the economy of Xi'an. Therefore, it is very important to study the foreign languages need of Xi'an. This paper makes an analysis on the characteristics of foreign languages need in Xi'an and takes an investigation on foreign languages majors of all universities in Xi'an, so as to find what kinds of foreign languages are insufficient and make some suggestions to make up the demand.
