When you submit this code, you'll see this result:

Bummer: We got a "; expected" error, which could mean a couple different things. It might mean you didn't end your statement in a semicolon. But it could also mean you didn't put parentheses after System.Console.WriteLine.

In this case, both issues are present. To call a method, you need both the method name and a pair of parentheses following it. Inside the parentheses you put any argument(s) you wish to pass to the method (here that would be the string to be printed). And of course, all statements should end with a semicolon.
