Mainly, things that derive from static typing:
* Method overloading
* Interface declarations (there are ways to simulate this in Python, but the 
effect is not identical)
* Checked exceptions (though I'm not convinced this is really something you 
need to learn)

I'm sure there are more, but these're what jumped into my mind.  Can't say I 
really miss any of them. ;)
