You don't write what is wrong but I assume you need to write it out. console.printf("%s is %s etc etc", name, pastTenseVerb); I don't remember what the text said exactly but you can read that in the instructions. Good luck!

In the first line, you have to prompt for the name of the user. You just write out Luis, i don't think anyone would know what to do with that... Try something like ("What's your name: "); Second line looks good.

After that, you can print out your String using the printf method. We use printf because you can use placeholders like %s for Strings, or %d for decimal integer values.
