You're using it right. I'm trying to step through the challenge to check your code but the system seems to be slow. Possible problems that I can see:

  • maybe they want "Treehouse loves mark" instead of "mark loves Treehouse"? (in which case you would put the variables in the other order)

  • why is the variable treehouse "Tree"+"house" - is that what they asked for?

You are using it correctly, you need to reverse name and treehouse to get "Treehouse loves mark" instead of "mark loves Treehouse".
