The short answer: everybody!
Whether you’re learning English for the first time or are still finding grammar and vocabulary difficult after many years of study, there’s no need to feel alone. Even if English is your first language, we know well those moments when language doesn’t come to us as easily as we’d like. We stutter in front of crowds of hopeful listeners and stare at blank pages, hoping to express even a tiny bit of what we’re feeling inside. There’s a simple reason why working with another person can benefit you and your work.
Language is meant to be shared.
Take the very creation of language as confirmation of this. It was developed so that human beings could share life-saving knowledge with each other. This occurs in all parts of the world and persists even in modern times.
As wonderful as something might sound in your head, you won’t know for sure until you’re in front of someone. We pick up on non-verbal cues to guide us through a conversation. We argue over the way we think something should be. As dreaded as they may be, we need questions from the audience during our presentations to be sure that others are understanding our ideas. We are beings that thrive on feedback after all.
When you have a personal conversation with someone about your writing or you get another person to fumble through the drafting process with you, great things can happen! That being said, you challenge the parts of language that already exist and create your own standards for communication everyday. So don’t be shy about putting forth your best work.
Be a proud part of that legacy and share your language journey with others. We sure hope that you’ll keep us in mind if you’d like some help getting started!
