Hi Malthe,

Unlike the first part of the challenge which asks you to create an interpolated string, the second part asks that you concatenate greeting with finalGreeting which is achieved by using the plus + operator as shown below.

let finalGreeting = greeting + " How are you?"

Happy coding!

Nothing seems to be wrong in your code. It worked in Xcode.

Yeah that's the tricky part, the code works in Xcode but it's not how you're instructed to perform the task. I had problem with this task as well, just be sure to read the instructions evenly.
