Learning German - meet our German friends: Felix and Franzi!

Meet our German friends!

They are two hand puppets, a frog called Felix Frosch and a duck called Franzi Ente. They live in a special German letterbox. Having recently moved to the UK from Germany, the two characters experience many adventures which form the theme for each chapter.

The characters are loved by the children and they enjoy learning  through songs, video and games.

The children learn about the culture of Germany and learn vocabulary around the themes of:

  • Greetings
  • Colours
  • Numbers
  • Food
  • Animals
  • Weather
  • Clothes
  • Dates - days and months
