The paper presents a current research project which studies, within a multilingual approach, the acquisition of textual competence in three languages taught at school (German as school language, French and English as foreign languages) at the transition between primary and lower secondary school (age 12-14). The central question is how the development of receptive and productive textual competences in the different languages is interrelated. At the same time we investigate how the teaching framework and individual learning preconditions impact on language acquisition. The research is situated in the context of the current curricular reform of foreign language education in Eastern Switzerland.
