To set your view controller as a delegate of the CLLocationManager instance, your view controller needs to conform to the CLLocationManagerDelegate protocol. If that doesn't mean anything to you, start here:

In the mean time to make your code work, your class declaration should be as follows:

class ViewController: UIViewController, CLLocationManagerDelegate {

I'll be releasing a course in the near future that covers delegates and protocols.
