You have your quotes in the wrong spot on

  System.Console.WriteLine("language" + is not C#);

They should be around "is not C#" because that part is a string. "language" does not need quotes because it is a variable declared above, so you want to use its value in the WriteLine method.

  System.Console.WriteLine(language + " is not C#");

This should be correct. Make sure to include the space after the first quote!

You left off a " the last statement should be:

System.Console.WriteLine("language" + is not C#");
