in reply to Learning with someone
On top of what was mentioned (Perl Mongers probably being your best bet) find a friend or co-worker is interested in learning with you. If they don't know what it is. Explain to them the power and simplicity of the language (although if you're a beginner you may not know this). I wish I had someone who was learning with me when I started working with Perl. I hope you have some luck.
