The static method String.valueOf(int) is one way:

int anInt = 5;
String aString = String.valueOf(anInt);

Another way is
int anInt = 5;
String aString = "" + anInt;

Well, there are all sorts of interesting things going on here, but converting between Strings and ints isn't really the major issue. The worst problem is that the initial "while (true)" loop encloses only the printing of the menu -- so the menu will be printed over and over, non-stop, until you kill the program.

When you do use String.valueOf(), it's in the following two lines

choice = 1;
String Choose = String.valueOf(choice);

which is really just exactly the same as

String Choose = "1";

The error messages are complaining about "Choose" because you're using it in the condition of the "if" statement several lines before you actually declare it, inside the loop. You can't use a variable before you define it.

Ernest is right. Right here:

You are using the variable Choose two lines before you declare it. You have to move the declaration outside the if statement if you want to use it in the if conditional clause.
