String is capitalized and that line should end with a semi-colon. Those parenthesis are not needed.

Hope it helps!

You will also need to change the variable name to firstName instead of firstname.

edit: Check out the Java documentation on Variables and their naming conventions if that doesn't make sense.

Post back if you are still stuck.

Happy coding,
