    For he/she is happy you would say "(El/Ella) està contento(a), depending if it's a male or a female the person you're talking about. I put El/Ella in parenthesis because you don't always use the definite article to make phrases, specially if you just mentioned the subject before, for example: "Hoy hablé con mi amiga Ana, està muy contenta".

    For plural: "(Ellos/Ellas) estan contentos(as)".

    Hola,

    He is happy; El es feliz / El está feliz

    She is happy; Ella es feliz / Ella está feliz

    They are happy; Ellos están felices / Ellas están felices or Ellos son felices / Ellas son felices.

    To be= ser, estar en español.

    Puedes usar el verbo SER y el verbo ESTAR. (Depende del contexto).

    Saludos!

     

    Hola Toby,

    She is happy would be : "ella esta feliz" o "ella es feliz"

    He is happy would be : "el esta feliz" o "el es feliz"

    They(women) are happy: "ellas estan felices" o "ellas son felices"

    They (men) are happy: "ellos estan felices" o "ellos son felices"
