Using 'San', 'Chan' and 'Kun'

'San' is not only honorific but polite. So when you refer to someone politely attach 'san' to their name. As in 'Suzuki-san'.

Caution: : Never refer to yourself using 'san'. So you should never introduce yourself saying: 'Watashi Smith-san desu'. You should introduce yourself by simply saying: 'Watashi (wa) Smith desu'.

'Kun' also gets attached to familiy names. Like 'san' don't refer to yourself using 'kun'. Unlike 'san' 'kun' is used when you talk of men who are equal to you or lower in rank. For example, little boys are often called eg 'Taro-kun'.

'Chan' is similar to 'kun' but is used to address peers and subordinates who are female. Young girls are often called for example 'keiko-chan'. Again, don't refer to yourself using 'chan'.
