Keigo is a difficult point which perplexes Chinese students in their Japanese learning. This paper aims to analyze the factors which affect Keigo learning through path analysis. We tested the Japanese and Keigo proficiency of 120 Japanese learners and established a path analysis model. After analyzing the causal relationship between the variables, we found there was no causal relationship between the length of Japanese study and the Keigo proficiency; exalted expressions proficiency is directly affected by Jyosi and Hikatsuyogo; there is no direct relation between Katsuyougo and Hikatsuyogo, they have causal relation with Jyosi and they affect Keigo acquisition through Jyosi. The results above suggest, grammar factors such as Jyosi etc directly affect Keigo acquisition.
