it goes from hard to moderately hard depending on the length of the clutch. you'll most likely get the hang of it within a few days, dialed in a few weeks
i just practiced in a parking lot for an hour or two, then i was ready for the streets.
when you start driving it have someone thats driven a stick for a while help you and give you some pointers and tips. it makes it way easier. then just go to an open parking lot and you will be fine after a couple hours but then it will just take a little getting used to and def a total focusing difference from an automatic
