The keyword they want you to focus on is return. Make sure that you return the string praise. Additionally, because you set the value for the variable name before, you don't need to set it again in your function.

class Student:
    name = "Malcolm"

    def praise(self):
        return "You're doing great, " + self.name + "!"
