ALL ABOUT KEIGO HERE:

Many commenters are confusing DESU/MASU for KEIGO. DESU/MASU is what one must learn when they are learning Japanese for the first time, it is the polite way of speaking, but KEIGO is like, one level above that, where all the verbs change. In DESU/MASU, To Eat would be "Tabemasu" but in KEIGO it's "Meshiagarimasu". "To See" - Mimasu - "Haikenshimasu/Goranninarimasu­" It is used to show maximum "politeness" and respect. These days, most people don't need it unless they're in a business situation.

Japanese language changes depending on the relationship between the speaker and the listener. While it is common in everyday life to use a combination of formal and informal Japanese, Keigo (敬語) is the most formal/polite way of speaking the Japanese language, and although many may not use it in their daily life, it is very important to know how to speak keigo in business, or when you are in a situation where you must show absolute upmost respect to the listener.

In my experience, I listen to keigo a lot more than I use it, I'm getting better at understanding it, but it wasn't always this way. Still, I am not confident enough to speak it, or even teach it, so I'll leave that to the commenters, if they will be so kind as to teach us a few phrases we can use. 8)

敬語は、日本語の勉強の中で私にとって一番難しいなのです。そうですよ、漢字よりも。今頃、聞くのに慣れても、話すことには全然自信ないです。コメントで、一番使える敬語を教えていただけると、視聴者のためになると思います。私も、敬語で丁寧に話せるようになりたいです。どうしたらいいでしょうか? よろしくお願いいたします。
