Random News: Hogwarts’ Classes

Hello Lovely Readers,

There is some exciting news that I am sure some of you have heard about. A group of Harry Potter fans have created a new website where you can complete the classes from Hogwarts. It is here: http://www.hogwartsishere.com/ Just as a heads up, you may need to re-fresh the page a couple times, it is having trouble coping with all the people accessing it. But keep trying.

So I have only just signed up, so I don’t have a full review of site yet. However, you can sign up with your name, or a made up name. While they do not assign you a house, you choose the one you want (I used my Pottermore sorting). And then everyone starts as a first year and you enroll in classes.

Right now I have only signed up for Defense Against the Dark Arts, as I just wanted to do one class first. When they say class, they mean there are readings and essays that will be marked. While this might not be for some people, I am excited. Also it seems like there is a way to make a community within the site, where you can interact with other fans, unlike Pottermore. So far from the icons that I can see it looks like many of the participants are older, late teens-early twenties. I will have a better idea in a couple weeks, and will report back then.

One other thing that you can do without actually joining is getting an acceptance letter to Hogwarts. You can view mine below. You get to make up the name and address. However, you can find me on the site under the name on the letter, so feel free to add me.

So will any of you be joining me in taking Hogwarts’ classes? Which ones are you looking forward to?

Until next time,

About Lynne

I am currently a PhD student of Forensic Psychology, which may explain the off mix of extremely morbid books sitting next to children’s books. Hailing from the Midwest in the United States of America, I have now lived in England for over 2 years (which will explain any strange grammar usage). From a very young age, my parents cultivated a love of reading, and never restricted what I read. When I reached middle school I began reading Shakespeare (a lifelong love affair), but had also discovered the wonders of young adult fiction. While the world may now expect me to read books more reflective of my age, I have fought this and am a strong supporter of the YA novel! Despite having very little free time, I still sets aside time for a reading every evening, and listens to books on my way to University. I dream of one day being a published novelist and published scientist!
