Hi SGT Awesome,

First declare a variable called response that is a String. Then set response equal to console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");

This will get you started:

//Declare a String variable named response, then initialize it using double quotes
String response;

response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");  // "yes" or "no" is stored in response variable

If you have any other questions feel free to ask!

Thank you SOOOOO MUCH! It turns out I understood how do it but it was with the guidance of your comment that showed me my syntax structure was backwards so, thank you!!!!! ^_^
