My code says I'm not calling the transaction method's commit method properly?

I'm trying to create a session and save data. Commit() method call syntax is the error point! Can somebody help? Plz!

HibernateMachine.java
import org.hibernate.Session;
import org.hibernate.SessionFactory;

public class HibernateMachine {
  // Assume sessionFactory has been initialized properly by its default constructor
  private static final SessionFactory sessionFactory = new SessionFactory();

   public void save(Language language) {
    // TODO: Open a session
    Session session= new sessionFactory.openSession();
    // TODO: Begin a transaction
    transaction.beginTransaction(session);
    // TODO: Use the session to save the language
    session.save(language);
    // TODO: Commit the transaction
    session.getTransaction.commit();
    // TODO: Close the session
    session.close();
  } 
}
