Description The development of multilingualism has been considered a desirable and generally accepted goal, since it was declared a priority of language education policy by the Council of Europe and the European Union several years ago. This paper presents a qualitative empirical study which examines how the development of multilingual writing skills and text competence manifests [???] in strategic and curricular documents and standardized tests using the example of the text type Invitation; the extent to which this text type is addressed in language textbooks and trained in common classes of (foreign) languages. This investigation is located in the context of research on third language acquisition in the area of multilingual writing skills, and it is focused on the currently typical foreign language constellation in Czech language education, i.e. English as L2 and German as L3. The description of the methodological design of the study and the presentation of its preliminary results are preceded by a brief statement on the current concept of writing skills, writing competence and text competence as well as the multiple text and text type competence.
