iOS Swift 2.0 Basics An Introduction to Swift Programming Working With Variables

Declare a variable named language and assign the string "Swift".

Declare a variable named language and assign the string "Swift". We didn't go over the specific syntax for creating a String so remember to start with a double quote, write the word, and close it with a double quote.

var str = "swift"
str = "Language"
str = "language"

What you're looking for is

var language = "Swift"

Swift infers that it is a string automatically because you put Swift in "".

You could also write the code below, if you wanted to explicitly declare the type as a string, but that is unnecessary.

var language = String("Swift")

What you did was declare variable str as "swift", and then you changed str to be "Language" and then "language".

Thank you man, i was having the hardest time lol. really, thanks

var str = "language" var language = "Swift"
