Girls Only Language Exchange (GOLE) is a female-organised group based in Melbourne.

We have been hosting events since July 2016 and currently host fortnightly events at a cafe in the Melbourne CBD.

Our goal is to encourage girls who are learning Japanese, and Japanese girls who are learning English to get together and practice their conversation and listening, as well as to learn more about each other’s culture and experiences. The reason we are “girls only” is because we wanted to create a safe space for women to be able to speak, listen, and learn among one another. GOLE is also LGBTQ+ friendly and we do not tolerate any discriminatory behaviour in our community.

We hope that our members find benefit from our events and are able to achieve their language learning goals in a safe and welcoming environment!
