Practice is about all I can suggest.
It's a generational thing. Just think how many young people there are who have never seen or driven a vehicle with a manual transmission. It's the same as those who have never seen a TV without a remote, or phone with a dial instead of buttons.
Even those who were raised in a time of stick shifts, many had troubel mastering the coordination of clutch and gas to get a vehicle moving. Just think what it would feel like if you've never attempted to operate such a vehicle.
We take such things for granted. They don't. By comparison think of yourself and computers when you were very young and the kids today who are schooled on them from early childhood.
