Says 'You need to use console.readLine' but I have?

There are no errors in preview

Example.java
// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
String response = console.readLine ("Do you undertand do while loops?  ");

I think your code is failing simply because you have a typo in your string - 'undertand' instead of 'understand'.

Also, you shouldn't really have a space between readLine and the parentheses, even though doing so doesn't seem to break the program. readLine is a method and by convention you do not separate a method from the parentheses containing the parameters using whitespace.

String response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");
