I don't know how to do this
def disemvowel(word): try: word.remove('a') word.remove('A') word.remove('E') word.remove('e') word.remove('I') word.remove('i') word.remove('O') word.remove('o') word.remove('U') word.remove('u') except ValueError: pass return word

Your approach doesn't handle these cases:
- if the word is a string, strings do not have a remove method
- any vowel appearing more than once will not be removed
- if any vowel is not found the try block to exit then return the current state of word
Suggestion: convert the word to a list then use a for loop to extract the non-vowels rejoin the non-vowels back into a string and return it.
Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
