    P.E(physical education)

    And my favourite subjects are P.E and art.
    ==============================
    Do you pronounce "P.E(physical education)" as "Pee Ee" as it is or its full name?

    Re: P.E(physical education)

    Pee ee. Americans often call it ​Phys. Ed. You need a period after each initial: ​P.E.

    Re: P.E(physical education)

    Both (not "all") pee ee and fizz ed are possible.

    Please remember to use a space before an open-parenthesis character.

    Re: P.E(physical education)

    Just calling it "gym class" or "gym" is more common, at least in my experience.

    However, when used, they must be used after both initials: PE or P.E.

    Re: P.E(physical education)

    At my primary and junior schools, we had PE classes. At secondary school, it was referred to as "games". Every Thursday, from 1.30 to 3.30, we had "double games", ie two consecutive periods during which we played a variety of sports.
