I don’t fully understand to what extent 先生 is used when not in a classroom situation. Is Koichi called 先生, because he made WaniKani? How about someone like Tae Kim, or Misa from Japanese Ammo? Or someone just making a YouTube tutorial?
Thanks for any help you can give, as this is confusing me a bit.
And interestingly enough, I’ve heard it used to get the attention of restaurant / cafe staff.
This article seems pretty in depth too!
Nice article, thank you for sharing! Just a had a read through it and it cleared up some of my confusion.
So… Sometimes? It definately seems like more of a case-by-case situation based on their experience and preference instead of a generic “Yeah, everyone on youtube can be sensei”. Thank you!
