    I agree with Mila.^^'
    The ending "-(으)십시오(not 십시요)" is the honorific form of "-(으)세요", and often used in written.

    e.g.
    Please learn Korean. (to learn = 배우다)
    = 한국어를 배우+세요.(polite, informal)
    = 한국어를 배우+십시오.(polite, formal)

    Please sit down. (to sit down = 앉다)
    = 앉+으세요.
    = 앉+으십시오.


    \^o^/

    Please.
