About the use of 'formal' I just wonder if 'formal' has something awkward. For example, "that's very formal" In this case, could I interpret this sentence as "that's very awkward" ?

No that would be incorrect. A great example of formal for you would be Korean honorifics. "It is formal to address your elders a certain way." Most of the time though in english we use the word formal like this: "Tonight's dinner in the grand ballroom is going to be formal with the gentelmen wearing tuxedos and the women wearing full-length gowns. "
