Why are all PHP Projects here at treehouse not Object-Oriented?

Why do you use structured programming for projects instead of the standard OOP that we see in all real world projects that are out there? I have problems when it comes o OOP in large projects so i came here expecting to be taught that but...... OK honestly speaking, the PHP projects are great but if they were to be refactored to OOP we would learn a lot.

To be honest OOP is difficult to learn at first. I use Procedural because it is much easier to understand instead of using the weird syntax it requires.

@Luc de Brouwer, you are right. As a beginner OOP is difficult bt as you grow and start to build real world "DRY" apps or when you want to use/fork an existing library/app, OOP becomes a REQUIREMENT. We need an advanced OOP course as much as we need the basics and intermediate courses.

Yes, I have but the example recipe program is very basic. It would be great if OOP was applied especially in the PHP authentication project and other complex examples. We need an advanced OOP course.
