    Default Error: LengthCharAt.java:3: ';' expected public static void main (String[] args)

    I keep getting this error for the code below:
    LengthCharAt.java:3: ';' expected public static void main (String[] args)

    What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks.

    public class LengthCharAt
    {
    public static void main (String[] args)
    private static void StringMethod()
    {
    String stringVariable = new String("helo");
    String[ ] stringArray = {"abcd", "f", "wxy", "kl"};
    stringVariable=stringVariable.charAt
    (stringArray[3].length()) + stringVariable;
    System.out.println(stringVariable);
    }
    }

    Java Code:
    public class LengthCharAt
    {
        public static void StringMethod()
        { 
             String stringVariable = new String("helo");
             String[ ] stringArray = {"abcd", "f", "wxy", "kl"};
             stringVariable=stringVariable.charAt(stringArray[3].length())+stringVariable;
             System.out.println(stringVariable);
         }
         public static void main (String[] args)
        {
               new LengthChartAt().StringMethod();
        }
    }
