Your code is a good example of string concatenation, but for string interpolation Swift uses this format:

println("Learning \(language)")

Please recheck you output Hilda. It should work without an error.

let language : String = "Swift"

println("Learning " + language) // + operator

println("Learning \(language)") // String interpolation

This should work as in this both ways we can concatenate Strings, either using + operator or String interpolation

And the let (constant) here doesn't matter as we are not reassigning the value back to constant property language, when we concatenate the Strings here we are creating another New String in the heap.

language = Learning " + language // Error as language is a constant property
