Is it OK to say, `I am crazy after English’?

No, it is not. You are usually `crazy about’ something, and not `crazy after’ something. When you are crazy about something, you like it very much. You go after it because you are very interested in it. It is also possible to say, `mad about’ something.

Example: Most students in my class are mad about cricket.
