I followed the instructions and the code looks correct but I get this error message ¨use of unresolved identifier¨

I am sure it is a very simple thing but I can´t see where the error is.

variables.swift
var language = ¨Swift¨

Hi there! You do not need to import any files for this challenge and you're correct in that the challenge asks you to create a variable and not a constant. The problem here is that you aren't using double quotation marks.

Here's your code:

var language = ¨Swift¨

And here's the correct code with the correct quotation marks:

var language = "Swift"

When the quotation marks are corrected, your code passes! Hope this helps! :sparkles:

edited for additional note

Because I don't know what keyboard layout and language you're using, I'm unable to tell you exactly where on your keyboard these quotation marks are located.

Did you have

import UIKIt

and

import Foundation

at the top of your file?

Try changing it to

let language: String = "Swift"

That changes it to a constant and sets it to the type of a String.
