Python Object-Oriented Python Instant Objects __init__

Part 1 - Question Unclear. Not sure if I'm supposed to be asking for an input, or using arguments. Neither Work.

I can't seem to get this right, I've tried multiple things such as asking for inputs, using arguments and neither of them work.

class Student:
    def __ init__(self, name):
        self.name = 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 self.praise()
        return self.reassurance()

Hi Ethan

You've got exactly the right idea, you just have a small typo in your __init__ declaration:

def __ init__(self, name):

You have a space between the first dunder (__) and the word init.
