    Salem, why isn't this working?

    Code:
    #include<iostream>
    #include<string>
    using namespace std;
    
    
    class Human
    {
        public:
            string name;
            int age;
            
            void IntroduceSelf()
            {
                cout << "I am " + name << " and am ";
                cout << age << " years old" << endl;
            }
    };
    
    
    int main()
    {
        Human firstMan;
        firstMan.name = "Adam";
        firstMan.age = 30;
        
        Human firstWoman;
        firstWoman.name = "Eve";
        firstWoman.age = 28;
        
        firstMan.IntroduceSelf();
        firstWoman.IntroduceSelf();
    }
    Code:
     error: ‘Human’ was not declared in this scope; did you mean ‘human’?   20 |         Human firstMan;
          |         ^~~~~
          |         human
    sams.cpp:21:9: error: ‘firstMan’ was not declared in this scope
       21 |         firstMan.name = "Adam";
          |         ^~~~~~~~
    sams.cpp:24:14: error: expected ‘;’ before ‘firstWoman’
       24 |         Human firstWoman;
          |              ^~~~~~~~~~~
          |              ;
    sams.cpp:25:9: error: ‘firstWoman’ was not declared in this scope
       25 |         firstWoman.name = "Eve";
          |         ^~~~~~~~~~

    Code:
    class Human
    Likely in the code you compiled you used "human" instead of "Human".

    If you have fixed that already delete the object files and rebuild all.

    Code:
    };
    I am only an C programmer; but, I think the ";" semi-colon is not needed.

    It builds for me. Like stahta01 said, the code you posted here is probably different than the code you tried to build (the line numbers in the error messages don't even match the code you posted).
