It should be like this:

// I've imported java.io.Console for you.  It is stored in a variable called console for you.
String name = console.readLine("Enter your name:  ");
String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine("Enter a verb in a past tense:  ");
console.printf("%s really %s this exercise", name, pastTenseVerb);

why do you add is used instead of System.out.printf("%s really %s", name, pastTenseVerb);

Sorry I don't know why I did that. I erased it.

Hey Arzeki, I copied your code into the challange and makde adjustments as we went along, really the only things that need to be changed are Name should be lower case.

Besides that you did a great job correctly storing your variables with console.readLine() method.

Also the challenge is wanting you to print out a specific string. It should be <name> really <past tense verb> this exercise.

I've included your code with the updates below, this should pass.

String name = console.readLine("Enter your name:  ");
String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine("Enter a verb in a past tense:  ");
console.printf("%s really %s this coding exercise", name, pastTenseVerb);

However, let me know if it gives you any more trouble.

Thanks.
