It is with great regret that we have to inform you that Authentik will be going into liquidation. Throughout the recession we have put forward all our efforts to survive despite cuts in spending to education, despite reduced numbers taking languages and despite huge challenges in the publication sector. Unfortunately, these efforts have not been enough and we will be closing the doors on Authentik Language Learning Resources Ltd.
We were unfortunately not able to complete the production of our Summer 2013 editions. We know that this means that some of you will not have received your full subscriptions for this year and we apologise for all the inconvenience this will cause. In lieu of the publications, we are providing all customers with free Digital Exam Practice Books to download here:
AS/A2 Digital Listening Practice Tests 2009
AS/A2 Digital Reading Practice Tests 2009
GCSE Digital Listening Practice Tests 2009
We hope that your classes will find the Exam Practice Books a useful resource for the summer term.
We hope that you have enjoyed using our language products during the past 32 years and we wish to thank you for your custom and your support over the years. We have been very proud of our products and of the wonderful team of editors and designers who have produced them and it is with great regret that we have to stop production of these resources for language teachers and learners.
We wish you every success and happiness in the future!

Since the Oscars took place a few days ago, have a look at probably the best Oscars…
We found this excellent video about the numerous benefits of learning languages.…
To beat the January blues, we are currently running 2 fantastic discount offers:
"Authentik provides a quick and efficient customer friendly service. The magazines are always colourful and informative and well organised in sections that follow the exam specifications. They are great way to encourage reading skills and to use as a springboard for class discussion. Using the magazines helps to keep students up to date with current affairs."John Coombes, The British School in the Netherlands
Epsom College has used Authentik products for many years and is very happy to recommend the materials, which have evolved to complement new syllabi and examining techniques both at GCSE and Advanced Level.Robert Ellison, Head of Languages, Epsom College, Surrey
Grammar exercises are both palatable and challenging, whilst the Comprehension passages and questions offer pupils an excellent opportunity to broaden their knowledge of the language. The materials are useful both in the classroom and for independent learning, and the facility through Authentik Interactive to access the materials on-line is of great help to both pupils and teachers.
They have useful vocabulary. There are lots of articles that relate to what we do in class that are not so difficult to understand.Students, The British School in the Netherlands
It is interesting to read news articles that relate to our age group. It gives us something else to read other than text books. It always forms the basis of good conversations and is quite Spanish based so we learn a lot about Spain.
The magazines deal with topics that are relevant to the time. The topics vary and I like the fact that the articles vary in length.
They give us day to day news that helps us to learn a lot of vocabulary. There is help given with the most complicated words. I feel more comfortable holding longer conversations in Spanish.
I use 'Authentik' frequently for teaching both adults and young people, for individual as well as class tuition. Most of the available teaching material in print is not very appealing because topics are often not currently relevant. 'Authentik' provides a welcome change - it is, indeed,'authentisch'.Kerstin Acquaviva, Language Teacher, Goethe Institut Irland
