Spanish - The chair is small

We've learned that in Spanish:
I am happy is Estoy feliz,
You are sad is Estás triste,
He is angry is Él está enojado,
They are excited is Ellos estan emocionados,
We are surprised is Estamos sorprendido
and This house is big is Esta casa es grande.

Let's learn more about the things we see every day.

To say The chair is small you would say La silla es pequeña

We can break it up into four words:
The - La - sounds like lahh /?/
chair - silla - sounds like see-yah /?/
is - es - sounds like ay-ss /?/
small - pequeña - sounds like pay-kay-n-yah /?/

All together La silla es pequeña sounds like lah see-yah ay-ss pay-kay-n-yah.
