import java.io.Console;

public class TreeStory {

public static void main(String[] args) {

    /*  Some terms:
        noun - Person, place or thing
        verb - An action
        adjective - A description used to modify or describe a noun

    */
  // __Name__ is a __adjective__ __noun__.  The are always __adverb__ __verb__.
  int age = 12;
  if (age < 13) {
    //Insert exit code
    console.printf("Sorry you must be at least 13 to use this program.\n");
    System.exit(0);
  }
  String name = console.readLine("Enter a name:  ");
  String adjective = console.readLine("Enter an adjective:  ");
  String noun = console.readLine("Enter a noun:  ");
  String adverb = console.readLine("Enter an adverb:  ");
  String verb = console.readLine("Enter a verb ending with -ing:  ");

  console.printf("Your TreeStory:\n--------------\n");
  console.printf("%s is a %s %s. ", name, adjective, noun);
  console.printf("They are always %s %s./n", adverb, verb);

treehouse:~/workspace$ javac Treestory.java
javac: file not found: Treestory.java

Hello, this error comes about when you are missing an ending curly brace. Based on your code it looks like there's two missing closing braces.

Try adding } } at the end of your code.

One to close main method, and one to close the class.

nice it works thank you very much
