I declared the method differently. Is this proper?

Hello,

Hope you're well. I appreciate you taking a look at this. :)

I often mix up object literal method declaration, and class method declaration like below:

class Pet {
    constructor(animal, age, breed, sound) {
        this.animal = animal;
        this.sound = sound;
    }
    speak() {
        console.log(this.sound);
    }
}
const casper = new Pet('cat','meow')

Is my solution to the code challenge correct?

mystring.js
const myString = {
    string: "Programming with Treehouse is fun!",
  countwords() {
    this.string.split(" ").length;
  }
}

You're close, but the instructions ask for a method named "countWords" (with a capital "W") but this code has it in all lower case.

Also, the method needs to return the length.
