Could somebody please check the code


  boolean isInvalidWord;
  do { 
     noun = console.readline("Enter a noun: ");
     isInvalidWord = (noun.equalsIgnoreCase("dork")||

    if (isInvalidWord) {
      console.printf("That language is not allowed.  Try again.  \n\n");
  } while (isInvalidWord);

  String adverb = console.readLine("Enter an adverb: ");
  String verb = console.readLine("Enter a verb ending in -ing: ");
  console.printf("%s is a %s %s.", name, adjective, noun);
  console.printf("They are always %s %s.\n", adverb, verb); 


} //It keeps saying that string cannot be converted into boolean for the 3rd line (showed below)

noun = console.readline("Enter a noun: ");

Hi there, Dhruv Reddy! You just have a small typo. You typed readline instead of readLine. Note that the correct method contains a capital "L". Remember that this is all case-sensitive.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
