" It's actually not that hard " or " actually it's not that hard" which one sounds more natural?

As SNL said, both sentences are okay but the first one sounds better.

I would like to add that if you decide to use the second one instead, do not forget that it's better to put a comma after actually.

"Actually, it's not that hard."

They both are okay but the first one sounds a lot cleaner. The second one seems to emphasize the word „actually“ much more and that may be your intention, based on the context of the sentence.

"actually" is often used as an intensive (a word used to add emphasis) to a statement.

It means "as a matter of fact, really, in truth, honestly, truth be told".

SHL and Sum1 are correct - both uses are correct.

It's actually not that hard= It's honestly/really/truthfully not that hard.

Actually, it's not that hard = Honestly/Truthfully/In fact/Really/Truth be told, it's not that hard.
