stalling and grinding on manual

Hey guy, I have a 1999 civic hatchback DX, and i just had a couple of questions. I know how to drive stick perfectly... however my friend is going back to our country and he doesnt know how to drive stick so i let him practice with mine. I just want to know because im curious, he made the car hop around for like 3 seconds before it stalled and when he put the car into second gear, not at the beginning but at the end, when the gear fell into place it made a little tick noise. Just wondering the hopping and that tick noise, how much damage will it do to the car, and what will get damaged?

gears are made of very tough alloy, then heat treated and hardened. it takes a lot to break something.

just don't let your friend drive your car again. let him practice on a rental when he's out of the country.

yeah, but it takes a lot of high RPM abuse for it to do damage. once in a while is not so bad that you'd wanna sell the car.
