In what languages do they search for information, online or otherwise?[edit]

Spanish, English, Hindi, French, German, Italian and many others.

In what ways does this group communicate with each other?[edit]

This can include services and apps in social media, mailing lists, physical spaces like conferences or lectures, or at specific institutions like at a library.

What are some reasons this group would use Wikipedia? How would they benefit from it, or what would they find useful?[edit]

As shown in many honest reviews, Wikipedia is a good source of information. It is also available in many languages, which makes it easier for foreigners to understand what is being told. Wikipedia might sometimes hep in tests, exams or any other school events. Even if these are unlikely, Wikipedia can be used to prepare worksheets or just for learning.
