Java Java Basics Perfecting the Prototype Looping until the value passes

I understand the video but cant get it to work on this question. What should I do?

Why do I have so many errors?

// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
String response;
boolean isInvalidWord;
  do {
    response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");
    if (isInvalidWord) { 
      console.printf("Ok you do not undestand.");
    } while (isInvalidWord);

More along these lines. The chief issue is to create the correct boolean in the condition, and the printf statement has to be outside the loop:

String response;
do {
  response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");
} while (response == "No");
console.printf("Because you said %s, you passed the test!", response);

Thank You
