You have a couple of errors in your code. First remove String firstName = "Gilbert" just make it String firstName;. Second make sure String Is capital because java is a case sensitive language.

This is how the code is supposed to look

String firstName;

firstName = console.readLine("what is your name");

found a solution already thank you
