For drivers that have not had experience on many different cars, it is important to remember that the clutch is not an "on/off" switch. Find the engagement point and adjust your seat position so you can engage/disengage the clutch without having to squirm in your seat. If you think you're going to stall, disengage the clutch and begin the engagement process again (making the appropriate adjustments in your technique...slower left foot, SLIGHTLY more right foot, or both). Also, place more reliance on what you feel through your left foot than what you hear with your ears. I'm sure you will pick it up quickly!
I envy you. Driving a right hand drive stick is something I have always wanted to do!
