The reason that you can't find the error is because there isn't one. Your code is fully functional. However, the challenge specifically states that you are to use concatenation and not interpolation. That's where the challenge fails. This means that you're also going to have to place the period(full stop) on the preceding line. Take a look here:

let name = "Jorge"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)."
let finalGreeting = greeting + "How are you?"

This is what they want :) Happy coding!
