Hi Dagur,

You are on the right track and very close. The only issue is that the Console.Readline() method does not (actually cannot) take any parameters. So, just fix that up and you're all good to go. :thumbsup:

string firstName = Console.ReadLine();

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:

Hi Dagur,

You're pretty close. If you remove the parameter string recipient in the Console.ReadLine() you will pass the task.

The input is passed into ReadLine() from what you enter on your keyboard so it does not take any parameters.
