This is what they are looking for:

// Enter your code below
let name = "Marlon"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"
let finalGreeting = greeting + "" + "How are you?"

encapsulating the var name in Swift \() is what string interpolation is, you concatenating strings, and also your "Hi there" was not a string, you did not have it in quotes. Hope this helped.
