Honorific words

안녕하세요 여러분! Today we’ll learn special nouns and verbs which we’ll have to use when we’re talking with someone superior in status or whom we want to show great respect. But remember!!! We will NEVER use honorific words when we’re talking about oneself, but only when we’re talking to or about somebody for whom we have great respect such as a teacher, a person older than us, a customer, a stranger, etc.
