First you tell the computer what type your variable is, in your example is string ( text between quotes aka “Tsenko” ), than you name your variable, for example firstName and than you give your variable a value which you asign with the “=“ operator. So all is: string firstName = “Tsenko”; Using Console.ReadLine(firstName); you just tell the computer to print you what’s inside the firstName variable, so the result will be “Tsenko”. Got it? The variable is like a box you place something inside and name the box with a pencil. So when you write the name of the box, it shows what’s inside.
