CAmel case?

it wants to write with camelcase and with using console.readLine ?

// I have imported java.io.Console for you.  It is a variable called console.

Mehmet, your camelCase is fine. Note that printf needs a format specifier. For strings it is %s:

String firstName = console.readLine("What is your first name?");
String lastName = console.readLine("What is your last name?");
console.printf("First name: %s", firstName);
console.printf("Last name: %s", lastName);

When the code runs the format specifier is replaced by the value of the variable.

Also note that the reason your code doesn't run Mehmet is probably due to the lack of capital letter in String. When declaring a String make sure to use a capital S for the String-class. This is fixed as well in jcorum's answer above :)
