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!
The Authentik Team
