Can't understand what is wrong?

It's works perfect in anaconda! Why I'm getting errors? Thanks!!!

wordcount.py
# E.g. word_count("I do not like it Sam I Am") gets back a dictionary like:
# {'i': 2, 'do': 1, 'it': 1, 'sam': 1, 'like': 1, 'not': 1, 'am': 1}
# Lowercase the string to make it easier.
def word_count(string):
    freq = []
    string_1 = string.lower().split()
    for i in string:
        freq.append(string_1.count(i))
    diction = dict(zip(string_1,freq))
    return diction

Maybe you meant:

for i in string_1:

in line:

for i in string:

Hope this helps!
