This part of the site is devoted to Dr. Nice's third year classes at EEB2. In Year Three we currently use the Oxford Latin Course book 1 (pretty picture on the right hand side!). Click on the book for more details. Below you will find a brief overview of this year's syllabOxford Latin Course Book Oneus - go to the relevant page for more in-depth information.

I have divided the third year part of the site into three sections: 1 for the syllabus - that's for you and your parents; 2 for language matters - so go here for everything relevant to nouns, verbs and so on; 3 for history and culture topics. Not all of these are available but I hope to keep it mostly up-to-date.

If you want to suggest any improvements please email me :)

Good luck and I hope you find this website useful!
