  1. Do you have a good dictionary? There are many online. Would you like an American English or British English one? Let me know and I'll provide some.

    content = happy, delighted, satisfied, pleased

    Here is my favorite Synonym Dictionary. Enter "content" and then you must know the part of speech - not the verb but the adjective:

    "couch" is sofa, chesterfield, depending upon where you are.

    This is what we like! A question about something so we can explain it to you!

  2. During the afternoon, my cats are content to nap on the couch.

    In addition to knowing its meaning, you also need to be able to pronounce the word correctly. In this sentence, "content" is pronounced con-TENT (stress on the second syllable).
