I am not sure either in Ubuntu, but there should be a menu item for Terminals, or xterm, urxvt, something like those.
I am sure an Ubuntu user can chime in here and point you in the right direction though!
If you know nothing about vim then you might find it a little confusing when you open it up, but it comes with a great tutorial program - simply type vimtutor instead of vim to start it.
