Hi Luis,

You're on the right track, but there are just a couple of things:

  1. You have a spelling error. "Console" is misspelled (missing an "n").
  2. The second task specifically asks for the String to be "<YOUR NAME> can code in Java!", but you have ""Hello, my name is ... ", which is not what the instructions asked for, and this will cause a Bummer.

Challenge instructions are very specific and need to be followed exactly. Even correct code will fail if the instructions are not followed.

Once you fix up those two small things, the rest looks great!! :)

Keep Coding! :dizzy:
