Hey, I am trying to learn the Japanese Language, and I was wondering if someone could tell me when to put the “O” honorific since I had seen it pop up so many times while I was doing the lessons. I hope you all are having a nice morning, evening, or night! Goodbye. :]

It does come up a lot in some words. I think you just learn them as you see them so often. I haven't figured out a rule about them yet, so I think it's a case of just becoming familiar with the words as you come across them. Of course, I could be very wrong about this, but I haven't seen any rules about when to put “o”.

こんにちは (Konnichiwa) ClaudiaR-sc5G,
Thanks for your question.
Unfortunately, there are no set rules as to which words take the honorific particles お (o) and ご (go). You just have to remember them as you go! Don't worry though, you'll encounter these words a lot, so you'll remember them in no time.
This lesson contains a section with some common words that take the honorific particles お (o) and ご (go):
I hope this helped! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
べんきょう を がんばって ください！(Benkyō o ganbatte kudasai!)

Oh, ok, thank you so much for both of your replies! I appreciate it very much, I hope you all have a nice night. :]

Thanks, BiancaM9! I have noticed that it's generally a few specific words that seem to be very important in Japanese life to have the honorifics. That and people. You'll figure it out! It's not too hard at all. It just takes a little bit of time.

[Also sorry I didn't respond sooner, I didn't have much time to focus on the course over the past few weeks]
