Driving a Car

 

Learn the dialog

Listen to the dialog while reading the text.
Thanks for practicing how to drive with me.
No worries. This is the fourth time you're driving?
No, it's the fifth time. I drove with my dad last week, too.
How do you like it so far?
It's still a little confusing, especially driving in the city.
Even for me the city can sometimes be stressful with bikers, pedestrians and traffic.
Traffic is the worst! And one-way lanes. I always miss the turn and then have to go around the whole block.
Have you driven at night and on the highway already?
I drove at night but not on the highway yet. The speed is a little intimidating.
Driving fast can be really fun, especially with a manual car.
One day I would also like to learn how to drive a manual but for now I've got my hands full with this automatic.
Once you are comfortable with the automatic, I will teach you driving stick.
I owe you. Thanks again Ashlee.
