To us it sounded more light kind of, not so hard like Serbian.
Maybe they were people from littoral.

I'm pretty sure for ex-yugos it's not difficult to hear the different accents.
It's the same for me in Romanian.

But don't know if I can make the difference between yugo languages, and also Bulgarian.
The same with slovak/czech/polish.

Not long time ago, my 7 year old son tried to teach 7 year old Slovak boy how to speak properly. He was not aware that Slovak is a different language, just thought the other chap did not speak well in Polish.

Yes, but English is the international business language.

True, but if you want to start a new business or expand into Germany, it's more convenient to speak German.

Not true. Flight mode is allowed in any time of the flight, but you must have deactivated mobile networking (or switched off entirely) during takeoff and landing.

Isn't necessary. They tell you over announcements that flight mode is allowed even during takeoff (at least for Air Berlin and Easy Air two months ago). Of course two or three years ago most phones didn't have those modes switchable.

I'm regular easy jet flyer, except if they changed their policy in last 5 months, it's (was) like what I said at least in my case all the time.

I did that at almost every takeoff / landing so far

... and my last flight I recorded it entirely (although I haven't published everything on youtube).

Flight mode disconnects everything, including actual phone calls and mobile data.

Therefore you don't need to turn off your phone. It is an overreaction to some isolated incidents (NOT accidents) which weren't proven fully that they were caused because of mobile devices.

Airlines and airports rather prohibit everything, like taking water bottle through security check (not in Asia, though).
