Keep getting an error. Help

For the question, "Given the constant named language, write a println statement which will print the following string: "Learning Swift". (Remember to use the language constant within the string you pass to your println statement)" I wrote:

let language = "Swift" println("Learning \ (language)")

This is giving me an error. Can anyone help? Many thanks.

let language = "Swift"
println("Learning \ (language)")

You cant have space between the \ and the ( . They need to be joined so that the compiler knows you are trying to do string interpolation.

println("Learning \(language)")
