Q: Please show me example sentences with "formal grammar" and "formal expressions" in conversation..
A: In English, talking formally is more about being polite. for example instead of saying,
"Come over here John" you can say
"John, could you please come here?".

Try not to be too direct or sound too confident. You can use words like
"Pardon" or "Excuse me?" Instead of "What did you say" or "What?" If you want to ask for permission you can use "May I..."
"May I look at those documents?" Even though these are polite ways of saying things, it still sounds stiff. I wouldn't worry about it that much, but it also depends on what workplace you are gonna work at. If the work is like construction (for example), you don't really need to be that formal but if it's business you probably do.
Q: Please show me example sentences with (grammar) "complement".

Q: About grammar 'had better'
Had better
First, I wonder is it a present tense?how about its past tense?

Second I want to ask a question about this sentence.

'It might be rain. We'd better take an umbrella.'

Why we use 'might' instead of 'may'
Because it is a conditional sentence ?
A: We use "had better" to refer to the present or the future, to talk about actions we think people should do or which are desirable in a specific situation. The verb form is always "had", not "have". We normally shorten it to 'd better in informal situations.

As for the second part, the sentence is a bit wrong.

"It might rain. We'd better take an umbrella." You don't need "be" in this sentence.

As to your question, "might" and "may" in this sentence are interchangeable. I use both.

"It might rain."
"It may rain."

I will stick to watch the ending.

I hope this is what you meant...
