For the millions of Harry Potter fans who read every single novel over the course of their childhood, it was difficult not to wish Hogwarts was real and that Harry, Ron and Hermione would be your best friends and that somehow you weren’t a muggle who coulnd't go to Hogwarts.
Although it can’t be entirely true, a group of die-hard Harry Potter fans have launched a website titled HogwartsIsHere.com. It lets muggles around the world live their biggest dream by enrolling in free nine-week courses and conversing with fellow fans, reports Time.
Classes available include Charms, Potions, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Astronomy, Herbology, History of Magic and Transfiguration. The one good thing to look forward to is not dealing with a real-life crazy Defense Against the Dark Arts professors.
It’s not all fun and games though. Homework will be assigned, quizzes will be given and tests will require studying, as if we haven’t learned enough information from constantly re-reading the magical novels and watching the movies.
It is free to sign up for the courses, but don’t be fooled. The website, although groundbreaking, has nothing to do with J.K Rowling, Warner Brothers and anything directly related to the books and movies. The website was created by determined muggles, who won’t let their non-magical blood keep them from indulging in their own Hogwarts experience.
Prepare yourselves, soon to be wizards and witches, you’ll even go through the motions of receiving your acceptance letter, going to Gringotts Vault and obtaining school supplies.
