Python Python Basics (2015) Logic in Python Loop

Can anyone help me solve this For Loops Challenge in Python?

Currently learning for loops in python and i am stuck, below is the task:

I need you to write a for loop that goes through each of the words in hellos and prints each word plus the word "World". So, for example, the first iteration would print "Hello World".

hellos = [ "Hello", "Tungjatjeta", "Grüßgott", "Вiтаю", "dobrý den", "hyvää päivää", "你好", "早上好" ]

Below is the task with the code I am writing to solve it; hellos = [ "Hello", "Tungjatjeta", "Grüßgott", "Вiтаю", "dobrý den", "hyvää päivää", "你好", "早上好" ] for word in hellos: print(word + "World")

Below is error message I am receiving: Bummer! Didn't find all the "Hello"s.

Can anyone help?

loop.py
hellos = [
    "Hello",
    "Tungjatjeta",
    "Grüßgott",
    "Вiтаю",
    "dobrý den",
    "hyvää päivää",
    "你好",
    "早上好"
]
for word in hellos:
    print(word + "World")

Hey Roger! When concatenating strings, like with anything else, Python will do exactly what you tell it to do, and nothing more. That means if you want there to be a space in between word and "World", you need to include that space at the start of the string. Right now it would print "HelloWorld" and you need it to print "Hello World". I know you can figure it out :) Happy coding!

Thank you so much, slowly learning how precise coding can be.
