Hi, how can we add space between words? This is my code:

let favoriteAnimal= ‘hummingbird’;
console.log(‘My favorite animal’ + favoriteAnimal + ‘.’);

This is what the console displays:
My favorite animalhummingbird.

The code seems to be right but ‘animal’ and ‘hummingbird’ are together as one word.

The same way you inserted the full stop at the end.

+ " " +

Does anyone know what program(for the actual console) they use for the lessons, I have been looking for a good one?

Shouldn’t the correct solution be:

console.log('My favorite animal: ' + favoriteAnimal.toUpperCase())

The all-caps in the instructions indicates a placeholder. We might infer the result should be the same uppercase, but it is not specified in the instructions.
