My code seems to work perfect in workspace but it is still no passing the test. anyone else having this problem?

I have tried it a few different ways but keep getting the same error that a few unwanted letters keep appearing...

def disemvowel(word):
    word_list = list(word)
    for letter in word:
        if letter.lower() in 'aeiou':
    return ''.join(word)

You need to reasign the original Word to the join method instead of Only returning it.

Word = ''. Join (word_list)

You could return the join as well, however you need to use it on 'world_list' and not on 'word' since you have applied the remove method to 'word_list' and not 'word'.

return ''.join(word_list)

instead of

return ''.join(word)
