what's wrong with my code?

import java.io.Console;

public class TreeStory {

public static void main(String[] args) {
    Console console = System.console();
  String name= console.readLine("What's Your name   ");
  String race= console.readLine("Which race do you belong to   ");
  String birthDay= console.readLine(" Which month were you born on");
  String ageAsString= console.readLine(" How old are you    "   );
  int age=Integer.parseInt(ageAsString);
  String noun= console.readLine("Please type in a noun    ");
  if (noun.equalsIgnoreCase("dork")){
    console.printf("This language is not allowed, Exiting site /n");
  {console.printf("Sorry you can't use this site\n");

It looks like you have used a forward slash (/) in your attempted escape character for a new line at the end of the sentence, "This language is not allowed, Exiting site /n".

The character should be: \n.
