Hi Daniel,

In the first task for this challenge, you need to make the function return a tuple and name the elements of the tuple.

So, you are returning two string, rather than one and each of these returned strings need a name. You can do this by changing what is returned by the function. It currently returns just one nameless string. So change it to return two, named ones.

func greeting(person: String) -> (greeting: String, language: String) {
    let language = "English"
    let greeting = "Hello \(person)"

    return (greeting, language)
}

Let me know if you need a hand with the other tasks in this challenge but that should get you started.

Cheers,

Steve.
