Mistake in lesson tips for "Nightmare"

Sorry if this is the wrong place to report this, but there's an error in the lesson tips, found here: https://www.duolingo.com/skill/fr/Nightmare/tips It says:

To say things like while sleeping or while working in French, use en, followed by a verb ending with ‑ant! Example: En sortant, j’ai vu mon voisin.

But instead, it should say verb stem/radical, since you are taking off the ending. It's just a small mistake and I think most people will figure it out, but it's best to clear up any confusion.

To me, it doesn't mean a verb ending + -ant but a verb that is ending with -ant.

Ah, I see what you mean now. Still, I think it's ambiguous because it's very easily misinterpreted, you might think it's -ant on the end of an infinitive, e.g. sortirant
