End of file while parsing error

I'm creating a do while loop in my TreeStory while following the lesson, but when I run it (after compiling) it gives me the "end of file while parsing" error. My code looks like this: import java.io.Console;

public class TreeStory {

public static void main(String[] args) {
    Console console = System.console();
  String ageAsString = console.readLine("How old are you? \n\n");
  int age =Integer.parseInt(ageAsString);
    if (age < 13) {
    console.printf("Sorry. This is NOT for you. Exiting...\n\n");
  String name = console.readLine("Enter your name:  \n");
  String verb = console.readLine("Enter a verb ending in -ing:   \n");
  String adverb = console.readLine("Enter an adverb:    \n");
  String adjective = cosole.readLine("Enter an adjective:   \n");
  String noun;
      do {
       noun = console.readLine("Enter a noun:   \n");
        boolean isInvalidWord = (noun.equalsIgnoreCase("dork") || noun.equalsIgnoreCase("jerk"));       
       if (noun.equalsIgnoreCase("jerk") ||
      noun.equalsIgnoreCase("dork")) {
    console.printf("That language is not allowed. Try again. \n\n");
  } while(noun.equalsIgnoreCase("jerk") || noun.equalsIgnoreCase("dork"));
  console.printf("%s is %s %s at %s %s .", name, adverb, verb, adjective, noun); 

It says that the error is at the end in that little curly brace at the end (see above) How would I fix this?

It means that you're missing a curly brace, the way you formatted your code here on the forums is a complete mess, but my guess is that you're missing the closing curly brace for the class itself. Try adding a curly brace to the end of your code and see if the compiler still gives you an error message.
