How do you return two values as a tuple? I go back and forth to the video and I'm still doing something wrong. Help.

Someone just tell me what I'm doing wrong. I keep getting discouraged because I know this is supposed to be so simple, but I keep failing at it.

tuples.swift
func greeting(person: String) -> (String, String) {
    let language = "English"
    let greeting = "Hello \(person)"

    return (greeting, language)

func greeting(person: String) -> (greeting: String, language: String) {
    let language = "English"
    let greeting = "Hello \(person)"

    return (greeting, language)
}

You are very close! But you need to tell the tuple which parameters you want
