Abstract

China’s foreign-language education policy has shifted over the years—from the political orientation of the 1950s that favored Russian, to the economic focus of the Four Modernizations that led to English dominance in the twenty-first century. Curriculum design has evolved too, and now embraces communicative, student-centered approaches that promote composite skill development. Teacher training, innovative materials, and a creative learning environment should improve the quality of Chinese foreign language education even more.
