There is two ways to speak, "Keigo" and "Tamego," although "Tamego" is not used as a technical term as often as "Keigo." The former refers to the polite honorifics that are used with highly respected or individuals who are older than the person speaking. "Tamego," on the other hand, is used when you are speaking to a person younger or of the same age. To break these rules and use "Tamego," to an older person that you are not familiar with will be seen as disrespectful.
How would you go about generating a good outline for your essay?
Generally, it is better to begin by choosing a topic that interests you. This is very important, because you need to find a topic that is in between being too general and too specific, so that you have enough points to talk about. Then create your thesis statement. If your essay is 5 paragraphs long, choose three specific topics that relate to your thesis statement. Make sure to relate everything back to your thesis. When you are making the outline, keep it general, but have a set format you follow so that you can use it every time. Once your points are created, you can now arrange them in an order that you think is most natural. This is how you should create an outline. Keep in mind that you should take this outline very seriously, because once you have it done, it'll be easy to arrange your essay.
