Just another question where based on the previous videos and this new idea of self..I am really not sure where to begin

Sorry, I hate to ask, but it is really unclear to me how to proceed based on this last video. I am just guessing at what might go in there. Is it def feedback(self): grade =

Do I need to include the methods within the new method or just call them in the new method.

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

    def feedback(grade):
      if grade>50:
        def praise(self):
          return "You inspire me, {}".format(self.name)
      else:
        def reassurance(self):
          return "Chin up, {}. You'll get it next time!".format(self.name)

Your new method should be defined after the two already provided (and not absorb them). But you will want to call them from inside the new method.

And your method will need to take both "self" and "grade" as arguments.

Thanks, I was able to get it to work eventually, and you were right, I defined it after.
