ok, position of the letters get that, but we haven't done arrays yet

Python doesn't know the singular and plural for continent but humans do. The variable name could be almost anything. For the second part of the challenge you'll want to check that the continent begins with A. For this you can treat continent like an array where the position of individual letters are accessed by an index ex: continent[i]

I get what you mean "Kris", well noted
