I assume you mean it's hard to shift into 1rst when the car is moving? Pretty much all manual tranny cars are like that. You can try rev matching and it should help you to get it into 1rst a little easier when the car is in motion.... but really, there's not much need to even use first unless you're coming from a dead stop.
Anything above 2 or 3 MPH, just use 2nd gear.
