Q: When you speak Japanese, you have to choose how you speak according to who are you talking to.
I mean, if you are talking to your superiors, you should speak politely.
On the contrary, it wouldn't be natural if you use too polite wordings to your inferior ones.
This morning, I was watching a re-run of "Columbo," American detective TV series in Japanese dub.
In it, a murder suspect was calling Columbo "Columbo-kun."
"Kun" is a honorific used for addressing to those of junior status.
So that sounded odd to me.
Maybe, they are dubbing like that, because all suspects in "Combo" are always persons with high status who look down on Columbo.
I tentatively switch the sound to English, and this time, the suspect called Columbo the "lieutenant."
это звучит нормально?
A: Natural.

Yeah, that's a really bad translation. Lieutenant is nothing like using くん. It shows honor rather than superiority. Though, since it's Columbo, it may make sense... who knows.
Q: Can I say "You were very helpful" to superiors like teachers or supervisors? Isn't it rude?
A: No, it isn't rude. You can say it. But you should say "You are helpful."
