"Él pretende que el hombre es un pingüino."
Translation:He pretends that the man is a penguin.
Gracias Bree_TM, your explantion seems to be just what I needed with this tricky verb!
Enough with the penguins already! How many of these phantom penguins do we have to have, anyway?!! If we're going to keep repeating the same sentences, at least may they be sentences that make some sense!
