我们 vs 咱们 同学们! 这两个字“我们”和“咱们”差是什么?什么时候用”我们“还是“咱们”? What is the difference between 咱们 and 我们? Both seem to be same, meaning "us". Are they synonyms?

"我们" and "咱们" differ in the meaning of the object. "咱们" must include the listener, and use it to call each other when speaking. includes the meaning of shortening the distance between the two sides. "我们" i can include the listener, and sometimes it doesn't include the listener.

For example,咱们学校 means you and I both in this school. 我们学校 means I and other students are in this school, but you don't.

*Native speakers, please correct me if you disagree with this. When I was taught the difference between 我们 vs 咱们, I was also taught that 咱们 is usually only used in northern(?) China whereas people in southern China prefer 我们. Is this true? Thank you.
