Code will not compile

The code will not run until I have an error in it. If I do that and fix the error, it will not re-compile after I have fixed the error.

This is the code I am running: var currencies = ["US":"Dollar", "UK":"Pound", "JP":"Yen"]

dictionaries.swift
var currencies = ["US":"Dollar", "UK":"Pound", "JP":"Yen"]

I believe you are supposed to assign the dictionary to a CONSTANT called "currencies", yet you used the keyword 'var', not 'let'.
