Mensagem: 

A more common expression is "My English is getting rusty."

 

And when you study or practice "your rusty English", you can tell people "I am brushing up on my English."

 

1-My knowledge of British history is rusty (I knew it one, I am forgetting it now).
2-I used to be a good soccer player, but I'm rusty now.
3-You can brush up on your English, British history, or even on your guitar playing.  And you can brush up on soccer.  You cannot brush up as a soccer player or brush up on being a soccer player..
