Clutch Brake Accelerator

It's as easy as ABC (backwards)

Your right foot lets you move or stop only (same as automatic)

Your left foot engages or disengages the gearbox

For those just trying to learn to drive a stick, let me make this suggestion (I have used this to train my stepdaughter and have had others report positive results). Go to an area with no traffic and flat, like a parking lot on early sunday morning. Have the student start the car, put it in first gear, then, using ONLY the clutch, release it till the car moves. Repeat this until the motion is fluid. If you can find a small incline also with no traffic, you can use the same technique for practicing at stops on hills.
