For instance, do they address female students as (Last name)-san or -chan, and males as (Last name)-san or -kun?

  • From what I've seen in movies, etc., it seems they often do 呼び捨て—specifically *not* using a suffix. I don't know how accurate that is to real life, though.

    At the college level, -san is the standard and safest choice when lecturers and professors address students regardless of their gender.
