    people /person

    They are a bad person.
    They are bad people.
    Which one is correct?

    By the way, can we say someone is a "people person?"
    Is that informal?

    They are bad people. (plural "They" and plural "people")
    S/he is a bad person. (singular "S/he" and singular "person")

    S/he is a people person. (OK) It's neither informal nor formal; it's just a description. It's often used in business. :D

    All the best, :D
