Could you please show your code. Should look something like this...

the script tag should be in your html document. Unless they are starting with a separate .js file.

<script>
document.write("Welcome to Javascript");
</script>

If you are using a separate .js file; just make sure that you have a <link> tag to your .js file within the .html file.
