Python Regular Expressions in Python Introduction to Regular Expressions Email

Stuck on Email Challenge in Python

I think I am doing everything correctly. However, the computer tells me, 'Bummer! unexpected end of regular expression". Could someone explain to me what I am doing wrong

import re

# Example:
# >>> find_email("kenneth.love@teamtreehouse.com, @support, ryan@teamtreehouse.com, test+case@example.co.uk")
# ['kenneth@teamtreehouse.com', 'ryan@teamtreehouse.com', 'test@example
def find_emails(string):
  return re.findall(r'{-\w\d+.]+@[-\w\d.}+', string)

Hey Hilary,

You've pretty much got it, except for 2 typos (Hitting the shift key when you shouldn't is something I'm bad for too.).

In your regular expression, you have an opening curly brace when it should be square bracket in the first set, and you have an opening square bracket and a closing curly brace instead of a square bracket in the second set.

Fix those up and you're good to go. Keep Coding! :)
