Your code is close, but there are three issues:

  1. You have misspelled language as launguage in your if statement.
  2. You have a semicolon after the condition of your if statement, which causes the if statement to be terminated right away.
  3. You have written console instead of Console inside of the if statement. Since C# is case-sensitive it does not consider those two words to be the same thing.

If you fix all of those issues like this:

string language = Console.ReadLine();
if (language == "C#") // launguage replaced with language and removed semicolon
    Console.WriteLine("C# Rocks!"); // console replaced with Console

Then your code will work.
