Honorific Speech is one of the most misunderstood parts of politeness levels, because it typically should only be used when referring to other people - whether they're in the room with you and listening or not. In this full 24 episode series I cover all of the major speech levels, and in this lesson I'll give you an introduction to what Honorific Speech is and how it works, as well as how it's mainly used. In later lessons we'll also learn several exceptions to this form, as well as how it can be mixed with various speech levels.
