Hello Taurai, You don't need to use try and except here. Here is my solution to the challenge:

def disemvowel(word):
    vowels = ["a", "e", "i", "o", "u"]
    word_list = list(word)
    for letter in word_list.copy():
        if letter.lower() in vowels:
    word = "".join(word_list)
    return word

If you want to use try and except then you could share your code, and I could try to help you implement it :D
