C# C# Basics (Retired) Perform if / else

I dont understand why the else statement wont work

I made sure i included the System namespace

CodeChallenge.cs
string language = Console.ReadLine();

if(language == "C#")
{
  System.Console.WriteLine("C# Rocks!");
}
else
{
    System.Console.WriteLine(language + "is not C#.");
}

HI Travis,

Your syntax is correct, but remember the spacing when concatenating strings. Right now if someone entered "Cheese", your string would return Cheeseis not C#.

Just fix up that missing space and the rest is good.

Nice Work! :) :dizzy:
