Hey Jr A, you are very close! The method readLine needs an argument. Try using ”” or some other string.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!

Using your code, this passes the first two tasks:

String name = console.readLine("Enter your name.  ");
// String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine(); 
String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine("Enter an adjective:  ");
