in reply to If Perl was my first language...

There are some good options. What do you want to learn? If you want to enhance your understanding of functional programming, go for one of the lisp-based languages. Emacs lisp is useful. Scheme is popular. There's always Common Lisp, of course. (Someone will say Haskell, but pick up a lisp-based language first before you tackle that, IMO.) If you're more inclined to shore-up your OO, go for Inform or Smalltalk. There are other options too of course. Assembly language is interesting to have under your belt; you won't use it much, but it's good background.
