The outstanding performance of these Italian learners reflects the hard work and passion of our students and teachers who share their love of languages. It should also be noted that Janet Hsu, a 2018 graduate, won the prestigious EDUITALIA Scholarship with a free two week study at the Club Italiano Dante Alighieri located in Rome. Congratulations to all that participated!
