Hey,

you separate the parameter name and its value with a colon (:) instead of an equal sign (=). You also have to call the getFullName method on the aPerson constant and assign it to the constant fullName .

Like so:

struct Person {
    let firstName: String
    let lastName: String

    func getFullName() -> String {
        var fullName = firstName + " " + lastName
        return fullName
    }
}
 let aPerson = Person(firstName: "Nader", lastName: "Adam")
 let fullName = aPerson.getFullName()

I hope that helps! :)
