Croatian for English Speakers

In the past there has been multiple discussions for Croatian to be a language on Duolingo. https://www.duolingo.com/comment/3447199 Unfortunately that hasn't happened yet, but I want to change that. I can't speak Croatian but I'm 25% and feel like I should learn it. I know there are a lot of native Croatians and Croatian speakers out there. Anyone willing to hep? Thanks!

There is Croatian, it's under the Serbo-Croatian umbrella, so it's listed with "s" and not "c".

Would people consider Croatian to be a separate language or Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian, and Montenegrin to be the same language? My family is Serbian, so I'm wondering if there is a Croatian course, I could learn it and I could communicate well with the family.

They are the basically the same language and you could communicate with your family . There are some differences, just like there are differences between British English and American English.

What I have heard it's politics that makes it different languages. Before the Balkan War it was considered the same language.

There are some differences I just don't know what they are. (Otherwise they wouldn't be classified as different languages.) I bet if you go somewhere the that group of Slavic countries, and for example called Croatian the same thing as Bosnian, people would probably get offended. Good question!
