what's wrong here?

Hi all, I keep getting error: 'you need to log final string to console'. What's wrong with code?

script.js
var months = ['January','February','March','April','May','June','July','August','September','October','November','December'];
months.join(', ');
console.log([months.join]);
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>

The "join" method doesn't make any permanent changes to the array, so calling it by itself doesn't do anything useful. Instead, you can directly log the result of performing that method:

console.log(months.join(', '));
