We met with Pengfei Chang, from China. Pengfei is a PG Arabic alumni studying for MSc Advanced Arabic at the University of Edinburgh. In an interview with Pengfei, we asked him the following questions:
Tell us about yourself
I am Pengfei Chang or شاهين, studying advanced Arabic currently at university of Edinburgh. Before that, I studied Arabic in China and international Management at university of Leicester.
What made you decide to study the Arabic language and culture? What & who inspired you? What were your motivations?
I was originally inspired by my father who was an engineer working in Iraq in 90s last century. He brought me some handcrafts and photos he took in Iraq. Since that I got interested in the Arab world.
