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
Authentik are due to launch our wonderful new Italian textbook, In bocca al lupo!, in early November 2010. The book has been developed in partnership with the Irish Department of Education and Skills and provides up-to-the-minute content, exercises and activities targeted at developing the 4 skills in Italian for intermediate to advanced level, perfect to take your students through the complete senior cycle.
The printed book and accompanying CD will be available from November 2010 but you can start using it in your classes now as the first three units, along with the accompanying Teachers Notes, are available free of charge to download here. Please note that these units may differ slightly from the final printed version, as we are currently in the final stages of editing for printing.
The book has already been piloted in a range of senior cycle classes with excellent feedback from both teachers and students. The draft table of contents attached here illustrates the thorough coverage of senior cycle topics through exciting and up-to-the-minute materials which this book provides.
The book will be priced at €38.00 and is a perfect resource to cover the full senior cycle, European Framework Levels B1-B2. We hope that you will consider using In bocca al lupo! with your students.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like any further information.
