There's two itsy bitsy problems that are causing this to fail. You're using Console.ReadLine where you should be using Console.WriteLine. And secondly, the thing inside the parentheses should be a string. We denote a string by puting quotations around it. In short, you're missing quotations in the line that should be a WriteLine :) Take a look here:

string language = Console.ReadLine();
if (language == "C#")
{
Console.WriteLine("C# Rocks!");` // Note the WriteLine and the quotes!
}

For some reason the markdown is refusing to show my quote marks! But replace the &quot with ".
