Who is Grammarly Indicated for?
As you have seen Grammarly is an English proofreader, it will not write for you. This means that you have to know English, you have to express yourself more or less correctly so that this tool can detect what you want to say and then offer you the most correct option.
In my particular case, Grammarly is perfect, I know how to speak English but I did not learn it in the academy. I learned it by practicing, when I speak it is more or less correct but when I start writing I commit many grammatical mistakes since the construction of sentences writing must be Something more formal, my English is very informal.
A test that works: when I write an email by myself, people can detect that I am not a native. But when I use Grammarly it is much harder to detect it. They even believe that I am a native in English.
Grammarly is a very complete software, especially in its paid version. If you write a lot in English and you are not native, this tool will be very useful when writing any document, emails, messages …
If you are studying English I recommend it, especially its Premium version where it will explain the grammar rules every time you make a mistake.
This is my opinion, if you try Grammarly I would like you to write yours in the comments.
