Why is this code not working?

I have trouble with this code and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
String response;
boolean answer;
do {
    response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?  ");
    answer = (response.equalsIgnoreCase("no"));
    if (answer) {
      console.printf("Please try again");
  } while (answer);
