Hi! I think that you have to call Console object as it mentioned, exactly printf method of it. So you probably have to write like this:

String firstName = "YourName";

console.printf(firstName + " can code in Java!");

Mind that printf method accepts String so you can easily add firstName variable just adding into it, but remember the white space of the next String, otherwise the will be attached. Hope it will help you
