Pleasant = (of a person) polite and friendly: ‘I’ve always found Bob very pleasant to work with.’

Pleased = happy, satisfied: ‘I was very pleased to hear that you’re feeling better.’

Pleasure = It gives pleasure to do sth (WITHOUT a): ‘It gives me immense pleasure to introduce today’s guest speaker.’

Do sth for pleasure (WITHOUT his/our/their etc.): ‘She used to be in the national team but now she swims just for pleasure.’

Be pleased to do sth BUT have the pleasure of doing sth: ‘In Java, I had the pleasure of attending a traditional wedding ceremony.’
