I mostly write my assignments in French. It just feels "strange" to me to write comments (which are just real sentences) in English when anyone which will read the thing shares my native language. When I'm comment complex things (like some parts of this compiler), I feel it easier and more comprehensive to explain them in my mother tongue.

Anyway, I write all of my "public code" in English. The audience is different.
