Charms, Transfiguration, Care of Magical Creatures, and Flying.

Maybe I'll get one of those time turners tho.... and that way I can take Arithmancy and Apparition too.

Apparition is not really a Hogwarts course... it's like learning how to drive, everybody needs to take it.

I would take Potions, DADA, Charms, and Transifigurations. Those four are, IMO, the most important classes offered. Arithmancy and Ancient Runes sound fun, and Divinition is a bird course, but they don't form the core of magical education.

Potions, I have always liked chemistry and mixing and creating my own"potions".

DADA, Charms, Transfiguration and Muggle Studies because it would be interesting to see how things looked coming from a different perspective.

I know that. I included it because in this survey you are being given the opportunity to go to a school and learn things you never would have been able to learn at a Muggle school.

I know it's a kids book, but one thing I always found jarring about Hogwarts was that it doesn't have an English or Maths teacher. How do wizards gain literacy and numeracy skills? Just because they're magical, doesn't mean they don't have to read and write or add up.

Mine would be Potions, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Charms and Transfiguration. They're the four key subjects.

Potions, DADA, Astronomy, and Transfiguration. No matter what McGonagall says, I still think Charms is the easy option.

JK has said that some wizards go to primary school, others are home-taught. That's daft.

Potions- the art of creating mixtures with magical effects

Be great and come in handy, creating love potions, and such.


Defense Against the Dark Arts- teaches defensive techniques to block spells, charms, curses, hexes and jinxes cast by other wizards, counteract the Dark Arts, and to protect from Dark creatures

Gotta have protection.


Transfiguration- the art of changing the properties of an object, a teacup into a mouse

Be cool to change lets say rocks into gold, or water into beer, or cockroaches into peanuts, then you could eat them.


Apparition- the art of magically disappearing from one place and reappearing in another

Be able to disappear and reappear anywhere would solve my gas problem and save on auto insurance.

Defense Against Dark Arts... Because if you use them, you need to know how to protect yourself from them... Potions because making poisons is always good... Apparition because you need to make an escape after casting a Dark Arts spell...

The study of magical plants is important.

Well, they don't go to Hogwarts until they are 11 so I imagine they get some other basic schooling before then, at home maybe?

Apparition would be the most convenient. Herbology would be cool.

Wouldn't it be simpler to just eat the cockroach?

I don't blame you.

I like walnuts, cashews and almonds. I like chocolate covered almonds rich nougats, creamy caramel, wrapped up in a golden gift box

I sleep with two of them every night and I do not think they have anything to do with how well I sleep. I think they may get in the way of good sleep, about the time I get ready to doze off one of them has to remind me he hasnít been to the gym today and wants to walk around the block. It takes five minuets before the rest of us can finally go to sleep!
