    Peter's Crazy English

    If Peter is an English tutor, and wants to open a tutoring class, is it proper to make a slogan like "Peter's Crazy English"?
    He must mean it as "being crazy or enthusiastic about English", but does it make sense?

    Re: Peter's Crazy English

    To me, it suggests that Peter's English is not what I would like my kids to learn.

    It does make it sound like he will teach you a "crazy" version of English.

    Re: Peter's Crazy English

    I​ would use something like the words from your post "Peter's 'Crazy About English' Class[es]".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
