How to Say “To Pretend” in Hebrew – Ulpan La-Inyan

When we pretend, our facial expression communicates something other than what we actually mean. In Hebrew, to pretend is להעמיד פנים
– literally, to set (one’s) face.
For example:
אפילו אימא שלי חשבה בהתחלה שאני מעמיד פנים.
Even my mother thought in the beginning that I’m pretending.
להעמיד
– “to set” or “to make stand” – is the הפעיל form of the root ע.מ.ד
meaning “standing”.
פנים
means face.
