    What do you think of the title, "English Mastering Institute?"

    Hi.
    I'd like to open my English school and I'm thinking of its name.
    I'd like to use the abbreviation "E.M.I." because my first name is Emi!

    I also would like to explain that this abbreviation stands for " English Mastering Institute"
    but do you think this expression is OK?
    I think that we should say "mastering English institute," but I absolutely want to use "E.M.I."

    Please tell me your opinion.
    Or if you have any good idea about what the abbreviation stands for, please please tell me!

    Thank you in advance.

    This question seems to belong in the General Language Discussions forum, to which I am moving it.

    You could call it "English Mastery Institute". That sounds a bit more natural.

    I prefer Mastery too.

    Thank all of you!

    I've decided that the "E.M.I." means "English Mastery Institute."
    I really appreciate it.

    If you don't mind taking a little more time for me, would you tell me how awkward "English Mastering Institute" is?
    Completely strange or acceptable but not natural?


    Thank you in advance.

    To me, "English Mastering Institute" sounds like it's the Institute that masters English.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
