Proper Use of createCriteria

I am trying to use the createCriteria method, but am getting an error on this challenge. What am I missing?

import java.util.List;
import java.util.ArrayList;

import org.hibernate.Session;
import org.hibernate.SessionFactory;
import org.hibernate.Criteria;

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

  public List<Language> findAll() {
    // Open session
    Session session = sessionFactory.openSession();

    // TODO: Create Criteria
    Criteria criteria = session.createCriteria(LanguageRepository.class);

    // TODO: Get a list of all persisted Language entities
    List<Language> languages = criteria.list();

    // Close the session

    // Return the list
    return languages;

Criteria criteria = session.createCriteria(Language.class); //removed Repository
