One of my Japanese students said the following today when we were practicing for an MBA interview.
"I want to founding my own venture in the future"
I corrected it automatically to "I want to find my own venture...". Also, I felt that "launch" or "start" would be better than the verb "to find" since he was talking about his long-term goal.
When I said this to my student, they said that there is a verb "to found". But I think we can't say "I want to founding my business/venture/etc", no?
At least I've never heard this kind of sentence so I'm confused about what the student means ...
Can someone please enlighten me? Is the student wrong or am I just not getting something?
