Hey all Harry Potter fans! Forget about teaching yourself how to crochet during the lockdown. Instead, enrol into FREE online magic classes at Hogwarts and graduate as a top-class Wizard or Witch.
That’s right the highly coveted Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry has gone virtual and is now accepting new online students. Brush up on your conjuring skills, learn new charms and practice your transfigurations and even dabble in some dark magic.
Hogwarts is Here is an unofficial recreation of the famous magic school, magicked up by its passionate fans. It’s got nothing to do with J.K. Rowling or Warner Bros. but that certainly doesn’t make it any less authentic.
When you join up to the ‘school’, you create your own character, pick a house and then enrol in a variety of online magic classes, while earning points for your house and chat with other Harry Potter fans in the virtual chat rooms.
“It’s Real for Us — and it’ll feel real to you, too,” the site’s creators say on the homepage.
This is not silly stuff – it’s actually quite serious, with each course featuring a comprehensive syllabus, lesson plans, and even assignments. And each course is taught by a qualified Hogwarts professor.
All kinds of magic classes
You can join all kinds of magic classes, including history of magic, herbology, alchemy, defense against the dark arts and care of magical creatures. You can start at year one and go all the way up to the advanced seventh year.
There’s even a Hogwarts library that features full-length Hogwarts textbooks and stories written by Hogwarts Is Here members.
We all need a bit of magic in our life and Hogwarts is Here is the perfect escape from the boredom of home isolation.
