I did a whole program about Australian Language. I found some interesting literature about the origins of our Aussie language. I went through that with our residents, and then went on to the slang sayings, I used Golden Carers list to start the program to get them thinking about the topic, then went on to the history side, and concluded with more downloaded lists of Aussie sayings. They loved it, and knew most of the meanings. One of our residents commented how good it was to remember those and that today's young generation don't have this type of language, instead they have acronyms eg: LOL, PSML,YOLO etc.
