The instructions say: Declare a variable named language and assign the string "Swift".

So some things to bear in mind:

  • in an assignment, the variable name goes on the left side of the "=" operator
  • the variable name should not be enclosed in quotes
  • the string to be assigned is not the same as the variable name
  • only the literal string will go on the right side of the operator
