Something that I've noticed about Japanese is honorifics are used much more than in English. How much do you use honorifics when you speak with your friends and family?

Your expression is fine, and is grammatically correct, as far as I can see. But perhaps your post would sound a bit more 'natural' like this:
"I'm Japanese. Do you have any questions?
Any question will do, as long as I can understand it.
And if my expression is strange, I'd like you to correct it".

I'm this thread's sort of owner...I dont know how to say that in English
My ID is probably different from that of my first post, because of the way I connect to Internet

We have many honorifics as you know. But talking with our each family, we hardly use honorific. And when we talk with our friends, we don't use so much either, maybe chiefly 3 honorifics or so on. One is "KUN" for man, and the others are "CHAN" or "SAN" for woman.
On the other hand, in a social function, we use so many honorifics. Maybe 10 or 20 are used according to circumstances at least, to my knowledge. I can probably understand almost all honorifics, but of course can't use all the honorifics properly.

And thanks to your correcting my English

From now on, please tell where you live if possible

Are you still around? I have another question if you don't mind.

What's daily life like in Japan? What do you do during your free time, and what's your work/school environment like?

Sorry if this isn't an interesting question.
