When learning a new language, I typically re-write "classical" algorithms in the new language. This might be a good start for you, too?

1. Towers of Hanoi (recursion in the language)

2. Starving Philosophers (concurrency in the language)

3. Sorts (bubble, merge, qsort)

4. Data structs (binary tree, hash-table) (re-implement these using Perl hashes - just for learning)
