"Bummer! Try again!"

This code challenge needs improvement.

The test automatically enters in "bogus" instead of "C#" and then quits when no loop is used(Despite correctly displaying the configured error message!). The challenge mentions nothing on how it expects to handle incorrect user input, then fails.

So I used a loop as is presumably intended. Now I just get the error "Bummer! Try again!" with no additional details. What gives?

Console.WriteLine("Which language is the best?");
bool keepGoing = true;
    string language = Console.ReadLine();
    if (language == "C#")
        keepGoing = true;                      
        Console.WriteLine("That's not what we want to hear! Try again!");
Console.WriteLine("C# Rocks!");

No, this challenge does not need (or accept) a loop.

And you don't need to print anything if the input is something other than "C#".

Just keep things simple, do only what the challenge asks and nothing else and you should pass easily.
