    Question Would it be considered natural to say, '...those who use English for their work...'?

    Hi,
    Could you please tell me if this combination of words sounds correct in English?

    '...for their work...'?


    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    Yes! The combination of those words sounds correct in AmE.

    Examples: "Enrichment classes may be needed for 'those who use English for their work'."
    "Those who use English for their work may be eligible for additional compensation in their salary."

    Common usage also allows 'in' to be substituted; 'those who use English in their work'.
