Hi Chris,

You don't want to be redefining the String class; just create a new instance of it.

So, use the new method on the String class using dot notation and assign that using = to a variable called string.

Let me know how you get on.


Task 1 is done @1:40 in the previous video. Task 2 has similar syntax.
