Hi there! You're doing fine, but you've failed to take into account what happens to the indexing of an iterable when you use the remove function. My suggestion is to try your code in workspaces and send in the word "Treehouse" and see what you get back. It will contain some vowels as some checks are being skipped entirely.

:bulb: It is generally a bad idea to mutate the thing you're iterating over.

Hope this helps!
