Default Checking the manua transmission?

Hi, I bought a 08 accord stick, my friend wanted to learn how to drive, so i didn't mind teaching him. Anyways, he was stalling alot and sometimes i wasn't sure if he was pushing the clutch in when changing gears. What happens if he changed the gears without putting the clutch in? Is there anything i need to worry and how can i check if everything is okay with the engine etc cuz of this? I just put in 1000km on the car and the dealer said it was only the firs 1000km that i need to drive the car carefully and under 3500 rpm. Is there a way i can check if i broke in the car alright. so if seals are proper.thanks

Its called "Floating the gears", it should not cause a problem as long as there is no grinding of the gears

well its not a good thing to be doing but it will happen many times in your car life time... and beleive me if you had a problem you would know it there would be oil leaking and you couldnt drive it....and is sound like maybe they need a junker to learn with and not your 08 i wouldnt let my best friend drive my new car... and really knowing that they dont know how you must be nuts.... anyway first dont do it any more and your car im sure is fine enjoy and no you driving it slow for a few weeks is about the only way to do it no way of knowing.... its fine.... i ve alway broken mine in at highway speeds .... drove it lik ehow i was going to be driving it been driving over 40 yrs and working on cars and truck just about that long as well is what i do for a living

while the running in stage is quite important to the rest of the life of the car it doesn't sound like there may be any damage done assuming you have no noises changing up or down the gears especially at speed changeing down [when syncromesh gears work hardest] & no obvious oil leaks, too late to worry now anyway have a bit of respect for your vehicle and wait a while before teaching anyone else to drive it especially a total learner no disrespect to you or your friend but dont you remember how bad you were when you started learning not meaning to insult but isnt it better to start on something you can afford to wreck
