# still the best moment in a tv show ever

San Diego Comic Con Day 1 by Ellen Everett

It was said (not 100% sure where) that in the battle of Hogwarts that Slytherins didn't stay to defend Hogwarts, some Ravenclaws stayed some did not, Hufflepuff and Gryffindor house both stayed to defend, I feel that one of the reasons why they stayed was different between Hufflepuff and Gryffindor was a bit different, sure they both wanted to defeat the death eaters and defeat Voldemort and all that, However i think that a part of why Gryffindors did it is because...

(cont.) They think of it as a great adventure, as something to tell their friends about, something to brag about, However i think that Hufflepuffs would do it just because it would help the school, they would do anything that was required of them, I believe that Gryffindors would just want to duel, or do something like that, i believe that Hufflepuffs as i have said will do it because thats what is needed, Hufflepuffs will clean the school if needed, duel, take care of the sick, Do whatever is needed.

Jo actually said it in an interview here! And I agree to an extent. I feel like Gryffindors DID enjoy the thrill of the fight (at least at first), but also they understood what they were fighting for and why it was important. And where Hufflepuff would understand that, too, their fight would be more out of loyalty and sheer heart.

On this whole voseo tangent, there is clearly not a huge emphasis on teaching that concept in a grade school setting, nor the first few courses in undergraduate level study at least here in the states. Obviously result will vary depending on institution, etc. Do you think this sets speakers up at a disadvantage with voseo still existing in many countries or does it play a role in the difficultly of learning?

I personally believe that both vosotros and voseo should be taught; though maybe in Spanish 3 or Spanish 4.

Because it’s really not enough to say that “only Spain uses vosotros so don’t worry about it” if someone is really interested in learning Spanish or being fluent. Especially because a lot of the Spanish classics or older Latin American books use vosotros. Especially if you’re focusing on Spain’s literature or theater, you’re at a disadvantage if you can’t at least recognize vosotros.

I feel the same way about voseo. In fact, I almost feel more strongly about learning the voseo because it’s so common in many Latin American countries. Sure, some countries don’t use it that often, but considering that there are so many famous authors and playwrights from Argentina, you definitely would want to be able to see and recognize it.

I especially feel that way if you learn Spanish in the U.S. because U.S. textbooks are more geared towards Latin America (while Spanish taught in Europe is sometimes more Spain-related). 

In addition, voseo is so colloquial it seems to put you in a position to be lost in conversation with Latin American speakers.
