【JLPT N4★Humble form “to do something (honorific)”】

謙譲語(けんじょうご/kenjougo) is the language used to show humility when you speak about yourself. In this case, you’ll only use 謙譲語 when speaking about yourself or those in your “inner circle,” such as close family or friends. Of course, you would never use 謙譲語 when talking about others, especially if they’re in a higher social position than you.
