java code error 10

My code seems to be exactly the same as the videos (Video on Java Basics).

My code looks like this:

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 Adam");
    console.printf("Adam is learning how to write Java");


But the compiler spits out this:

treehouse:~/workspace$ javac Introductions.java
Introductions.java:10: error: reached end of file while pars ing
1 error


From what I understand, it is the '}' that is wrong. I deleted the '}' on line 9 because I though that was what the video did. Any help on fixing this so I can continue would be much appreciated:)

Hi Adam,

you need here one additional } for the class declaration ...

I your code only the main method is closed
