How are honorifics used?

One of the most confusing things about honorifics is that the choice of respectful or humble terms depends on the person you are talking about.
(敬語について最も混乱しやすいのが、尊敬語(そんけいご)を使うのか、謙譲語(けんじょうご)を使うかが、話す相手によってかわるということです。)

For instance, when Japanese people talk with others about family members or people at their companies, they should use humble words.
(例えば、自分の家族や会社の人間について外部の人と話すときは謙譲語表現を使います。)
