What wrong with this code?

I did everything like in the video but its still does not work

// I have imported java.io.Console for you.  It is a variable called console.
string firstName= console.readLine ("What is your name? ");
console.printf("Hello, my name is %s", firstName);

Hi Dmitriev,

Just change the 's' of the 'String' to capital letter on the first line
