Course Description

Teacher in Charge: S. Blandford

As Dumbledore said, “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” Was he right? Do our dreams inspire us to higher heights or can they ultimately lead us to be unsatisfied? What about when our obsessions turn into nightmares for ourselves and others. Explore the concept of ‘Dreams and Nightmares’ in this Level 3 English course.
