its not hard try to learn on a slight uphill so when you get on an actual uphill you dont freak out and also just learn how to get first gear going dont worry about the rest until you get first gear down the rest is cake

Practice on a flat road first.The hardest part is getting into first gear. The rest is easy. You have to try to match the accelerator rpm with shifting and letting out the clutch. After you get the hang of it it will become second nature. you may stall the engine when you are first learning. If you get stuck on a hill in traffic it may help to use the handbrake until you get the hang of a manual transmission. Good luck.

Step 1: Find someone that knows how to drive a manual well. Step 2: Have him/her drive you out to the country/outskirts of town, or any really low traffic area (bonus if you have a friend with a farm) Step 3: Practice- the key is to find the right engine rpms for releasing the clutch. Once you find your car's sweet spot (what will not spin out the tires or stall the engine), then just try to shift in that sweet spot in every gear. Note: Finding a cheap car to practice in relieves the worry of breaking an expensive engine. And worse case scenario- If you live in a busy city just wait till the wee hours and find an empty parking lot. Good luck. You probably won't need it.

nope. it takes minutes to days depending on your learning skills. best to learn it on a flat surface first. (street, parking lot)
