Java Java Basics Perfecting the Prototype Looping until the value passes

do while loop

I just need a next step, if someone could help me out. I'm not sure where to start. Please don't give me an answer. Just tell me if I'm on the right track and give me a hint.

// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
String response;
boolean isNo;
do {
    response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?"  );
    isNo = (response.equalsIgnoreCase("no"));

No to provide you the answer but you have to remember that a while loop has to have a condition, you are missing the condition, as an example

do {code} while (condition);

You're very close, the response code is right. isNo is incorrect. You are missing the while part all together. You're telling it to do this. Then you need to tell it do that while this is true or equal to no.
