Can't find the error here

I wish teamtreehouse challenges would provide SOME sort of feedback or stacktrace. It's not really representative of real-world debugging scenarios. I just can't find what's wrong in my python here.

articles/views.py
from django.http import HttpResponse

from .models import Article
# Write your views here
def article_list(request):
  return HttpResponse("There are %(num_articles)i courses." % {'num_articles':len(Article.objects.all())})

I agree that debugging in the challenge widget is not ideal. In this case, you're code works fine, the problem is that they want the output to be "There are ... articles." instead of "There are ... courses."
