Python Object-Oriented Python Instant Objects Method Interactivity

Calling a method from another method within the same class

Just got muddled up in calling another method in the same class as a result of a particular logic test.

first_class.py
class Student:
    name = "Your Name"

    def praise(self):
        return "You inspire me, {}".format(self.name)

    def reassurance(self):
        return "Chin up, {}. You'll get it next time!".format(self.name)

    def feedback(self, grade):
        if grade>50:
            return praise()            
        else:
            return reassurance()

You are very close!! To reference a method in the same class instance use self. That is, return self.praise() and return self.reassurance()

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!

Thanks Chris. We crossed the line.
