Not sure what I have done wrong...

Please could you have a look at my codes?

disemvowel.py
def disemvowel(word):
    vowel=["a","e","i","o","u"]

    for letter in vowel:
        try:
            word.remove(letter)
        except ValueError:
            pass

        try:
            word.remove(letter.upper())
        except ValueError:
            pass

    return word

You're applying remove to a string, but it's a method for lists.

Also, you'll need to account for words that have more than one of the same vowel, but the remove function only removes the first occurrence.

Perhaps you intended to use replace instead?
