    American Association of Italian Teachers

     

    More than 5,000 students participated in the National Italian Exam this year and nearly 1,500 received medals for their outstanding performance on the 2019 National Italian Exam.  The outstanding performance of these Italian learners in our national competition brings honor to their school, their district, and their Italian program. The AATI values highly the tremendous work of these students and their dedicated teachers.

    We would like to commend the excellence of our 2019 National Italian Exam Gold, Silver, and Bronze Award Winners and congratulate all the students.
