Hey Whitney,

If you're logging text, make sure to surround the text with quotes.

console.log("Begin program"); // Don't forget a semicolon
document.write("Welcome to JavaScript Basics");

I thought so because it's a string right? thank you.

Your syntax is a little off. Here is the correct way of writing it: console.log("Hello World");

Don't forget the quotes and semicolon at the end. Good luck with Javascript, it's tough but with enough diligence and practice it will really start to click.

I hope so Thank You Mr. Mullin.
