Oh, this must be what to say when the random annoying dude is trying to flirt with you by giving or buying you something. :P

Does anyone know how to say please? And also a less formal-sounding version of farvel?

Well, surprisingly there is no such word as "please" in Danish. For a "less-formal" word of "farvel" I'd use hej-hej

Danes would not know what to do with that word. Its not necessary.

The only moment when it would be necessary is when you beg to have something "plese please please, take to the city", but my teacher and friends said they'd just use "please" then.

Really? What do they use instead that would be similar, if anything? I'd really like to now how you can not have please in a language. Never seen that before, very interesting :)

Farvel is it more formal or less formal?

"farvel" is formal, but applicable in most situations. Less formal is "hej" or "hej-hej"
