iOS Build a Simple iPhone App with Swift 2.0 Getting Started with iOS Development Swift Recap Part 1

When I run this code, it tells me "Make sure you're declaring an instance method named description that returns a String

The title, basically.

    struct Tag {
        let name: String
    struct Post {
        var title : String;
        var author : String;
        var tag : Tag;
        func description () -> String{
            return "\(title) by \(author). Filed under \(tag.name)"

    let firstPost = Post(title : "iOSDevelopment", author : "Apple", tag : Tag(name : "swift"));
    let postDescription = firstPost.description();

Hi Yao,

While technically not incorrect syntax, the code checker does not like the space between description and the ().

Just close that up and the challenge passes.

func description() -> String{

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:
