C# C# Basics (Retired) Perform if

Write code to print “C# Rocks!” to the console if language equals “C#”. Don't what to write here, help me!

I understand what loops do and if/else, but somehow I don't know what to code here.

CodeChallenge.cs
string language = Console.ReadLine();

It works. I was trying to put a ; after the if line and all I had to do was remove it and it worked.

If you understand how if/else statements works then you might just be overthinking this challenge, because the solution is quite simple, all the challenge is asking you to do is check if the language variable is equal to "C#" and then print out "C# Rocks!" if it is, like this:

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

If tried this but somehow it still doesnt work.. Maybe i am missing something. Could it be that I have create a variable named language first or a boolean??
