Hi there, David! There are quite a few things going on here. First, you set up a variable named firstNamw instead of firstName. Note the last letter in the spelling.

Secondly, the challenge does not ask for anything to be passed into the readLine as a prompt. Inside your console.printf statements you are printing out things not asked for by the challenge such as "My name is". Also, you are missing colons. Keep in mind that these strings must match the challenge instructions exactly. This means capitalization, spelling, punctuation, and even spacing.

The ending code for this challenge at step 4 of 4 should be a total of 4 lines long.

Hope this helps, but let me know if you're still stuck! :sparkls:
