You might start by writing an if statement.

This was suggested by the instructions. And you'll also need a Console.WriteLine to output your message.

Thank you! ;)

string language = Console.ReadLine(); if (language = C#) {
Console.WriteLine("C# Rocks!") }

not correct? :/

Not quite:

  • you put an assignment operator ("=") where you need a comparison operator ("==")
  • you forgot to put quotes around "C#"
  • you forgot to put a semicolon (";") after the WriteLine statement
