You'll need to share your code to make it possible for anyone to help. The best way would be to make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here.

Almost certainly you forgot a character somewhere.

For instance, here is my working code:

import java.io.Console;

public class Introductions {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Console console = System.console();
        // Welcome to the Introductions program!  Your code goes below here
        console.printf("Hello my name is Kevin");

You can compare what I have to what you have. Pay attention to placement of quotation marks, parenthesis, and semi-colons especially.
