French as a Second Language 10-3Y, 20-3Y, 30-3Y

Does anyone know of the existence of these three courses?  I have looked at Black Gold's material, however, when I spoke with Jennifer Southcombe, who stated that the course hasn't really been managed for 10 years, as the cost of the online textbook support (that is essential) is quite expensive, so they have switched to a more traditional teacher-led in-person strategy. She stated "Unfortunately we only purchase a handful (like 8) of these textbooks and do use them in the program still.  They were very expensive AND we needed the Supersite access (this is built into the online course) which increased the price of the text and prevented us from buying used textbooks. We ended up moving away from that particular online course and did not renew the supersite licenses.  An outreach teacher took over the delivery of our French courses and uses a mixture of her own materials, ADLC resources, duo lingo and the Espaces textbook.  she did find some used versions of the textbook here:  AbeBooks.com 

I have not maintained those French courses so I can't guarantee any links etc.  I found the Supersite very difficult to work with - however if you have a dedicated French teacher it may be much easier."
Any suggestions from the community would be appreciated!
