Default English?

It's is not, it isn't ain't, and it's it's, not its, if you mean it is. If you don't, it's its. Then too, it's hers. It isn't her's. It isn't our's either. It's ours, and likewise yours and theirs.

When people say English is hard, I can just laugh. Like, the words don't even have 3 different genders, nor 7 different cases with billion different suffixes to begin with. Croatian, for example, is so hard even our own prime minister doesn't use it, but instead uses English

Actually, almost every semi-official document and such at Croteam is written in English. And everyone there is very fluent in it, they had no problems using it when I was there, like it was second nature to them.

That seems a bit different from just Croatian/English being difficult/easy...

It would seem to me as good practice to use English because you never know when you'll have to work with people who don't speak Croatian on some part of your big gaming project.

If they get a new person on their team or have to work with other developers, it's a lot easier when everyone can read the documentations without having to translate them

Even I write my code in English in case I release it so people can read it, or if I need help I can show it around. Btw, when I went to school, English was taught starting from 4th grade, now it is already taught in kindergarden at the age of 5-6 I think.

Also, in all software companies where I applied for a job English is the "official" language, since they mostly work for foreign markets. I find it a bit uncomfortable that you being a Croat could technically be considered a disadvantage in this field even in my own country, if you think about it.

Heh heh, this thread about English brought back a funny memory to me from many years back.
My mom was watching some crime show, and she couldn't make out everything they were saying because of their accents.
She said " I sure wish they would speak English". I laughed and told her, " Mom, they ARE speaking English, we speak redneck. We are from Oklahoma and the show she was watching was British.

English is apparently not even close to the hardest language in the world. Croatian is 10 on this list but Finnish is mysteriously absent. It is on plenty of other lists though.
