Enjoying..

Hello Everyone!

I would like to know whether the following phrase is technically correct or not. If yes, what is the most formal way of saying the same.

"I am enjoying 25% discount on tuition fee every month"
(i don't know but enjoy is seemingly awkward here)

Thanks in advance.

    This may vary with the variety of English, but in AE, I think we would say:
    I am enjoying a 25% discount on tuition fees every month.

    It is an acceptable use of "enjoying", but I associate it with advertising copy.
    In ordinary life, I would be more likely to say something like:
    I am benefiting from a 25% discount on tuition fees every month.

    A few more thoughts...

    I agree with Cagey that "enjoying" is acceptable. If you just want to state the fact that you are getting a discount, you might try "I am receiving a 25% discount on tuition" or "I am entitled to a 25% discount.... " Also, write out 25% as "twenty-five percent."

    I am receiving (or, I receive) a twenty-five percent discount on tuition fees every month.

    I'm in the "receiving" camp. I would tend to use "receiving" here.
