  Notes:  
There are basically two forms of keigo -

■ 尊敬語  そんけいご respectful
For someone "above" you, eg a teacher/client/boss.
eg "will you come tomorrow?"

■  humble
You use about yourself, when speaking to someone above you.
"I will go there tomorrow"

Many common verbs basically take a different form.
