Remove the string inside the readline method it is not needed. If you want to print to the screen what is your name print the question to the screen and then use the readline.

This is what I have, but it doesn't seem to work could you help:

// I have imported java.io.Console for you. It is a variable called console. console.printf("First name:"); String firstName = console.readLine(); //console.printf("First name: %s\n", firstName); console.printf("Hello, my name is %s\n", firstName);
