Create an instance of a method

I don't think I understand this well enough.

structs.swift
struct Person {
    let firstName: String
    let lastName: String

    func getFullName(firstName:String,lastName:String)->String{
        return firstName + lastName
}}

struct Person {
    let firstName: String
    let lastName: String

    func getFullName() -> String {
      return "\(firstName) \(lastName)"
    }
}

let aPerson = Person(firstName: "Alex", lastName:"Smith")
let fullName = aPerson.getFullName()

I chose to use string concatenation in my function. I believe this is the format they are looking for. If you have any specific questions don't be afraid to ask.
