IB Classical Greek HL

I'm (privately) studying the International Baccalaureate higher-level classical Greek course, intending to take the exams in May 2004 - and I was just wondering if anybody else here had any information about it (apart from what's in the Subject Guide and Vade Mecum).

An Encomium of Oxford

Following on from Why Latin?, Episcopus and Keesa both asked about Oxford. Raya may have heard all this before but here goes.<br /><br />I studied English Language and Literature at Keble College Oxford and enjoyed every moment.

It was an all-male, drinking-and-rowing college ...

Advanced Latin

Is anyone aware of a decent, advanced Latin text? I want to find a instructional text of the same calibur as Wheelock's Latin with more advanced subject matter. Any suggestions, no matter how inane or impertinent, are welcome.
