English International School is an Authorised Centre for Cambridge English Young Learners exams (YLE), which have been developed by Cambridge English Language Assessment, a department of the University of Cambridge. The school was founded in 2003 and the main school is located in the modern part of Modica, which was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002.

Over the years English International School has developed tailored courses designed to meet students’ needs and different learning styles. We offer a wide spectrum of courses from one- to-one, in-company and group courses, as well as morning, afternoon and evening classes.


In 2005, the school was recognised by Cambridge University as a Cambridge ESOL Preparation Centre and is today an authorised centre for Young Learners. We also offer courses of other languages, translation and interpreting, summer schools and kids camp programmes.In September 2013, we opened our second school in Ragusa, the provincial capital, to offer an even greater service to our local community.


Our mission is to strive for excellence in everything we do. We want to help our community grow and become more cosmopolitan by making the English language accessible to everyone within the province of Ragusa.


  • Promoting a professional teaching environment thanks to a careful selection of teachers;

  • Placing the students at the centre of our courses both in the private and the public sector;

  • Preparing our students for universally recognised certifications within the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and the Cambridge English exam suite;

  • Selecting the most appropriate materials and teaching aids to meet students’ needs; creating a pleasant environment for teaching and learning;

  • Promoting the development of language exchange and summer school programmes in various English-speaking countries;

English International School is committed to constantly monitor the quality of education offered and to develop new strategies in response to the challenges that the world of communication and work pose to the international market today.
