Hi Jannis,

the code you posted is correct so I assume that you passed the first task and you are struggling with the second one? All you have to do is to use conditional statement to check first character of each continent.

continents = [
    'Asia',
    'South America',
    'North America',
    'Africa',
    'Europe',
    'Antarctica',
    'Australia',
]
# Your code here

for continent in continents:
    if continent[0] == 'A':
        print("* " + continent)

TY :)
