Hey Geo,

Everything is looking good, but you may want to try this:

// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console

//task 1
firstName = "Geo";
// task 2
// no need for an equal sign after printf and be sure to put a space between the quotation mark and the letter c of can
console.printf(firstName + " can code in Java!");

Hope this helps!
