Hello Chidiebere Ekennia

I see you are liking Java code.

Alright, your error is on the readLineMethod() - the L in readLine() should be in Capital.

Please see this snippet.

//your code on line 14
String adjective = console.readline("Enter an adjective: ");

//try out this code instead, save and run the code
String adjective = console.readLine("Enter an adjective: ");

Please let us know how it goes. Tonnie

Thanks Tonnie. silly mistake, lol
