Hi, I can not get past this challenge. Is there any way you can tell me what I am doing wrong?

I am really struggling with this challenge.

  <script>console.log("Begin program");</script>
document.write("Welcome to JavaScript Basics");

Don't add additional script tags.

Just use the ones already there and put your additional JavaScript code on the blank lines provided.

Thanks, that fixed my problem. Why doesn't console.log get a script tag?

It's already inside a script section. You can have any number of JavaScript lines in one script section.
