Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows







I finally went to see the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." As I had been longing to see the film for months, I was pretty excited at the movie theatre. The movie was fantastic as I had expected, however, I was a bit dismayed to see some people distracting our attention with their manner-less attitudes.
I'd like to share the movie with you more, but I'm a bit tied up right now, so maybe another time...

I've been dying to see the film called "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," and its release day is just around the corner! Of course, I'm going to see the film on the first day.
How many years have passed since I read the first volume of the Harry Potter books? I've been studying English with fun through them. Although I look forward to see the final Harry film, I feel a bit sad at the thought of its end.

I put an English expression on the top page of this blog: "It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities." Some people may know where it comes from. The expression was said by the greatest wizard in the Harry Potter's world, Albus Dumbledore. In "Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets," Harry was struggling and vexed at some of his similarities with his old enemy, Lord Voldemort. Dumbledore understood how Harry felt, and gave him profound advice.

"It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."
Don't you think it definitely shows a silver lining? It says it's each of us that creates our own lives. No matter what happens to us, there will be a way to proceed. We can choose. We can fight. There's no need to cry about our fates.
I like the expression very much, and it firstly popped up in my mind when I started this English blog.

Why is she called "Madam"?

I've been wondering why Madam Hooch isn't called "Professor"? Professor McGonagall is a teacher at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Madam Pomfrey is kind of a school doctor, and that's why, I suppose, she has a bit different position from those of other teachers. But, why is Madam Hooch, who has her own class, is called "Madam" instead of "Professor" by everyone? Is it because she is an instructor to teach how to play Quidditch? I'm very curious about it.

I've been still wavering over whether I can buy Harry Potter audio books because they are pretty expensive. Last night, while surfing on the Net to get the details about the differences between British versions and American ones, I found a site that was full of useful information I wanted to have. After comparing them, I should say I prefer British versions. The reader, Stephen Fry, was fantastic. His British accent was quite attractive to my ears. If only I can afford it!
