No you definitely do not need () everywhere in any string ever. The only time you need () is when you are pulling in information from somewhere else. So the correct code is

let name = Joanna"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)."

so in the future, only use () if you are pulling in information from somewhere else, use standard words if you can help it/ Also remember, you don't need , after each () if you have multiple of them. I hope that makes sense, good luck with your classes!
