Felix und Franzi Teaching Materials

The Felix and Franzi characters, along with engaging materials, were developed by the Goethe-Institut in London for use in primary education. Each unit follows the story of Felix the frog and Franzi den duck, the funny hand puppets originally from Germany. The two characters accompany the students through the syllabus introducing new vocabulary and activities in each chapter. Interactive learning is encouraged with the use if fun and interesting videos and songs.

The materials are available for download free of charge:
