Because it's in the present perfect tense.

Hi Bjørn,

I don't have a real explanation, as I'm just a learner, but my instict tells me that in this context it's not possible to include het before the language.

I think maybe it has to do with the fact that there's no preposition before Direct Object (in this case, italiaans).

Compare

waar heb je italiaans geleerd?

with

wie heeft in het italiaans gepraat?
