Hi Leslie!

When it says "write out to the screen" they don't want you to literally type it out on the screen. They want you to write a line of code that, when it runs, will PRINT that sentence on the screen. That means your sentence has to be inside a print() command. Oh, and remember that the parts of your sentence that aren't your variable are literal strings, so they have to be inside quote marks. :)
