Are you trying to complete the code challenge? If so, the instructor has already created the 'console' object and you don't need to create a class.

Hi Kevin,

your code is fine but see the comment Craig left for us

// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console
// the code is already implemented into the challenge and you don´t need to write it by your own
import java.io.Console;

public class Introductions {

// so Craig imported the Console class
// and named the object of the Console class "console"
// now you can use console.printf without importing something
}
