2 Answers

Do you have two close brackets? one for

public class TreeStory {

and one for

public static void main(String[] args) {

Works for me if you fix that.

full code:

import java.io.Console;

public class TreeStory {

     public static void main(String []args){
        Console console = System.console();
        /*  Some terms:
            noun - Person, place or thing
            verb - An action
            adjective - A description used to modify or describe a noun
            Enter your amazing code here!
        */
       String name = console.readLine("Enter your name:  ");
       String adjective = console.readLine("Enter an adjective:  ");
       console.printf("%s is very %s", name, adjective);
     }
}

thats what it was... thanks man.

You are probably missing another } bracket. It would be helpful if you posted the code that you entered so we can tell you exactly what's going on.
