In fact this code is already doing what you want, but if the second
character, by example, is not in secrectWord it'll jump out of the for and
return. If you want that interact through the all characters and  maybe
count how many them are in the secrectWord, just take of the return there
or do some list comprehension like: [ r for r in secrecWord if r in
lettersGuessed] .
