The treehouse console does not let me write the tilde ~ even though I am able to write it on my terminal.

I am using a Spanish keyboard, but I can switch both to Spanish and english and with none of this options I am able to write it on the treehouse environment. ~~~~ IDEAS? thank you

It's best to do programming in any language on a English keyboard. :)

Hmmm.... Did you press Shift and the backtick (`) symbol at the same time?

yes, I don't know what else to do to keep doing the course :( ... because the problem is the treehouse platform not the keyboard itself, any other ideas?

Try following along in you own terminal. It should function (almost) the same :smile:
