Hey Flavio,

Task 2 of this challenge wants you to use Concatenation to form the string, but you are using string interpolation, which is why you are getting the Bummer!

You can review how to form a concatenated string in the first video starting at the 4:30 mark.

If you still need assistance, feel free to post a reply. :dizzy:

let name = "John" let greeting = "Hi There, (name)" let finalGreeting = greeting + ". How are you?"

here is what it should look like. Hope this helps
