Hey Ryan!

I think your issue is that you're missing the camel case in the readLine method. The compiler doesn't know which method you're referring to:

JavaTester.java:119: error: cannot find symbol
String response = console.readline("do you understand do while loops?");
  symbol:   method readline(String)
  location: variable console of type MockConsole
