Python Object-Oriented Python Instant Objects Method Interactivity

How do I call a method inside another method?

What am I doing wrong here

first_class.py
class Student:
    name = "Unashe"

    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:
            self.praise()
        else:
            self.reassurance()

You've called the method properly using self. The challenge prompt is asking your feedback method to return the result of the praise or reassurance methods. Currently, your method is not returning anything. Python does not return a value from your method call unless you explicitly tell it to by using the return statement.
