Hi Amirun,

No, you can add these two perfectly fine. However, the subject will now contain the string "Treehouse lovesAmirun". There's no space there so you won't pass the test. Try watching the video or reading the instructions again for more help :)

As Mathew said, when you do this:

name="Amirun"
subject="Treehouse loves" + name

now subject is "Treehouse LovesAmirun"

You want to put a space between the first string and the second string.
