What if I wanted to put another variable between the backticks that contained a string, would I have no choice but to...

use a + to insert the variable?

The answer wasn't explicit, but the MDN makes it clear that the syntax Osama used is required (including the dollar sign and curly braces).

From the MDN on Template Literals

`string text`

`string text line 1
 string text line 2`

`string text ${expression} string text`

tag `string text ${expression} string text`


Template literals can contain place holders. These are indicated by the Dollar sign and curly braces (${expression}).
