Abstract
In spite of the over 100 years of English education as a second language in China and the introduction of modern business English into the said country, standards for the proficiency of the language have never been set up. A possible solution, being explored by researchers at home and abroad, may be a set of proficiency scales to be developed from Chinese English users’ perspective [1]. This essay, as a periodical achievement under a government-sponsored project, a Research into the Standards for Business English Proficiency in the Background of Fostering Xi’an into a Northwestern International City in China, tries to demonstrate the author’s initial study on the issue and trigger more endeavors toward it.
