Learning as an adult, I think you will probably get a feel for it much quicker. Just make sure the bike is the right size for you to ride. If it is too big, you will never be able to get comfortable on it.
Once you get a sense of balance, you will find the best way of getting going on the bike is to stand over the top tube and push off, lifting yourself into the saddle with your first pedal stroke.
