Hi there! This will be infinitely easier to help you troubleshoot if we can see a snapshot of your workspace. On the upper righthand side of your workspace you should see a camera icon. Clicking this will allow you to create a "snapshot". If you link that here, we can fork your workspace and take a look around and help you narrow down the problem (or potentially even solve it!). :sparkles:

Hi there! You're doing great, but you have a few issues going on here. The first one, and the one which is causing your compiler error is that your class must be defined inside the namespace. The namespace itself should have an open and closed curly brace. It's why it encountered an "unexpected class". It's because you didn't precede it with an open curly brace. Secondly, you should be using System; which is missing entirely from your workspace. Third, you have a capitalization error in the declaration of your string entry. It should be String instead of string. Remember that just about everything in programming is case-sensitive.

Here is my resulting code after I correct your code with some comments:

using System;  // This is required to use the Console functions

namespace Treehouse.FitnessFrog
{  //Note the open curly brace here

  class Program
  {
    static void Main()
    {
      // Prompt the user for minutes exercised
      System.Console.Write("Enter how many minutes you exercised: ");

      String entry = System.Console.ReadLine();  //Note the capitalisation of String
      // Add minutes exercised to total
      // Display total minutes exercised to the screen
      Console.WriteLine("You've entered " + entry + " minutes");

      // Repeat until the user quits

      Console.ReadLine();

    }
  }
} // Closed curly brace for the namespace

Hope this is helpful! Good luck and hang in there! :sparkles:
