Print Your StringPrint Your String

Good to see you again!

It's time to talk about a data type that has become an inseparable part of coding: strings. Strings are a way to input your everyday words into a Python program. Python recognizes specific words like "print," "if," and others as special, but for your own words, you need to enclose them in single quotes ('word') or double quotes ("word") – you can use either of these two ways.

Let's look at the example:

There's another way to define strings that's not used as often, and it involves using triple quotes:

This type of definition can be used when our string consists of several lines (we will receive an error otherwise):


  1. Tell me about the weather in your city. Assign bad to the variable string1 if the weather outside is bad; otherwise, assign good.
  2. Tell me about your mood today! Assign could be better to the variable string2 if your mood is not okay; otherwise, assign could not be better.
  3. Now tell me if your mood depends on the weather. Assign yes to the variable string3 if it depends; otherwise, assign no.

Everything was clear?
