I was born in Guangdong…
Welcome back. I am glad to see so many of you return and hope that you are ready to continue your education in Defense Against the Dark Arts. Last week, we learned a lot of history and ended class with two spells that were fairly simple and should not have given you too much of a challenge. This we…
Welcome to Lesson Three, everyone. I appreciate your patience and am thrilled with the progress you all are already showing.

Today will be the last day of new, testable content; next class’ information will not be on the final exam. The content covered will be about an extra creature that will not be appearing on the exam, but is worthwhile to know about; then you will be sitting your final examination. I strongly …
As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. We have reached the end of our first year together and today you will be sitting through your final examination for this course. As a treat, we will be briefly covering a creature that you will most likely never encounter, due to it being ext…
Defense Against the Dark Arts Year One will serve as an introduction that will set the foundation for your magical education and properly prepare you for future work in Defense Against the Dark Arts. Here, we will explore what the Dark Arts are, some basic defensive and offensive spells, and low ranking dark creatures that will allow you to develop an understanding about how we discuss and defend against dark creatures.
