    have (a) pleasure

    Dear teacher

    It is correct to say "have pleasure" or "find pleasure". Is it possible to say

    "I have A pleasure in doing something"?

    Thank you for your help!

    I don't think 'I have a pleasure' is correct. I believe 'to have pleasure in something' and 'to find pleasure in something' work.

    Hello stranger, you have been missed! :wink:

    The phrase "it is/was a pleasure" is a polite more or less meaningless response. ...thank you for helping me ... it was a pleasure...

    1. I find pleasure in doing something.
    2. Doing something gives me pleasure.
