They want you to print the constant called language and add a string "Learning" in front of it.

If you want to print a constant or variable, we use syntax which looks like this:


This will print only the constant so the output will look like this: Swift

We want the output to be: Learning Swift

The final syntax is:

println("Learning \(language)")

I hope this will help :)

This is correct, although the code from the OP would work, I believe they want you to use string interpolation instead of concatenation.


println("Learning " + language)


println("Learning \(language)")

Good luck :)
