A matter of balance — Reflections on China's foreign language policy in education,

Hu Wenzhong  
Although China has a clearly delineated policy on the dominant Han language and ethnic languages and has achieved successes in both status and corpus planning, there has never been a consistent well designed plan for foreign language education. Policy shifts were often motivated by a political agenda of the time. My argument is that when the political agenda prevails over the educational, foreign language education suffers and that when the political agenda converges with the educational, foreign language education gains. What happened in the 1950s and in the 1960s in China seems to support this argument. The review of past events in the history of China's FL teaching throws light on the need for a consistent language education policy in which there is a good balance between the political and the educational agenda. This plan should take into full account China's needs both at present and in future years and the language use situation in the world.
