    Is there a special way to say "Dear Diary" in French? Or is it just "Cher journal"?

    I need to write a French diary entry for school. The entry is supposed to be written by a nine year old girl about her experience on a ship.

    Moderator note: several threads on the same topic were merged.

    "Cher journal" is the best entry you can choose.
    Maybe ''Cher journal de bord".

    I would say "Mon cher journal, ..." * "Cher journal intime, ..."
    a diary = un journal intime
