Relative clauses usually refer to nouns,pronouns,determiners,etc. Here you can say " The site is also (meant) for people/for those " and then choose the clause. As "English "is a noun here I would say "whose English isn't their mother tongue".

  • There can be different relative clauses with the same meaning. Just consider "The site is also for people studying English as a foreign /second language. For non-natives studying English."
