Hey Luka,

There is no need for a boolean or an if statement with this challenge. You simply need to continuously prompt the user until the value returned is something other than "No".

You should have something similar to:

String response;
do {
  response = console.readLine("do you understand do while loops?");
} while(response.equals("No"));

With that being said, keep in mind that these challenges test for specific answers.
