Should it be 'a master' or " masters" in the sentence below ?

" Become a master of English".

Please shed light on this.

    You're speaking to one person, presumably: "Become a master of English."

    It still sounds a little odd, but I've addressed your question.

    What meaning of master are you using? Do you mean "a person who speaks English well" or "a person with an MA degree in English"?

    The first one is as Copyright said in #2; the second one requires a change in sentence structure such as: "Obtain a Master's in English".
