    Stick Shift Driving Lesson - 1 hour

    Driving with Anton
    At the risk of sounding like one of those heinously-corny-meets-aggressively-arrogant car commercials, allow yourself to be introduced to what is so freaking cool about driving stick shift. For starters, it offers better control and superior gas efficiency. It also prolongs brake life, and of course, you look pretty awesome while doing it. (It's really big in Europe so... enough said.) This class is designed for drivers of automatic cars looking to learn something brand new, as well as those looking to improve on a shifting skill set they may already have. Drive forth and prosper. Note: Requires a valid drivers license. Pick up is available from Sheepshead Bay subway station (the B or Q lines) or the Bay Parkway subway station (the D line).

    Italian Slang

    Fluent City
    How many of us speak in perfect grammatical sentences? Very few. So why would you speak that way with Italians? For starters, it may come off as inaudible. Secondly, if people in English aren't using the word "whom," does it make sense that Italians would use the equivalent? Fluent City will teach you the language heard on the streets and in the media -- essentially what is used in everyday life. Stop sounding like an academic American and experience the Italian point-of-view, in a language they understand.

    Portuguese Pronunciation and Slang

    Fluent City
    Not too many people indulge in reading manuscripts for fun. So, if not many people are reading manuscripts, why would you want to speak like one? Fluent City wants to teach you how to speak the Portuguese found on TV, in magazines, and most importantly, in the streets. These are words you won't find in a textbook and are more important than, "Where may I find the nearest lavatory?" You'll not only learn Portuguese slang, but will understand what it is and why it is so common. Stop sounding like an academic American and experience Portuguese the way the locals speak it!
