    Re: hallo - formal OR informal?

    I see it as neither one nor the other. It is a standard general greeting, usable in both circumstances.

    There was a discussion about this some time ago on here. I assume that you mean "hello" not "hallo".

    "Hallo" in German is very informal, bordering on the insulting.
