How do i use the loop on pattern
How do i iterate or loop through the pattern attribute
class Letter: def __init__(self, pattern=None): self.pattern = pattern def __str__(self, pattern_test): pattern_test =  for pattern in pattern_test: return str(self.pattern) class S(Letter): def __init__(self): pattern = ['.', '.', '.'] super().__init__(pattern)

Your loop syntax is good, but you've used the new variable as the iterator instead of the pattern. Instead, use:
for pattern in self.pattern:
Also, a different loop variable name might help avoid confusion. Perhaps something like "element" or "symbol"?
Then, you'll still need to add the code to convert the pattern characters ("." and "_") into the output string ("dot" and "dash" with "-" separators).
