We are launching digital Christmas Pen Pals during the month of December for children and families.

We have created so many wonderful encounters through our Charlotte sy Dimby community and wish to allow you to meet one another.


You are all invited, there is no age limit or boundary. If you think your child is too young to take part, you can sign up as a family. Adults are welcome too.

It's entirely free. We will close subscriptions on the 30th of November for the event to begin on the 1st.

All you need to do is fill in the Pen Pal form for us to make groups.

If you don't celebrate Christmas, you are still welcome to join us. We can pair you with a family with the same beliefs/religion as you. It can also be the opportunity to create cultural exchanges. Don't hesitate to mention it at the end of the form.


Once you have signed up, we will create meaningful pairs based on the information you have provided and your preferences. 

You will then receive fun templates with different options adapted to your age to help you get to know your Pen Pal. Sky is the limit, these are just guidelines but feel free to innovate and be creative. 

You will also receive a Christmas card template. The idea is to send a virtual card to your Pen Pal as a Christmas gift!

You'll then be free to pursue the relationship as you wish. 

By taking part you will also receive access to our online 'Learn French with Charlotte and Burlington' Christmas countdown.
