Here's a few hints:

  • nothing named "def_str_" has been defined, and it's not valid definition syntax
  • the instructions only ask for a "praise" method, nothing else will be needed
  • a string has no "self" attribute
  • you can use concatenation ("+" operator) to build up a string using a variable
  • the syntax for a concatenated message might look like :point_right: 'well done ' + self.name
