Keywords: social competence, emotional competence, social skills, social abilities

The study of social competence is one of the most important areas of research into human social behaviour. The paper discusses and analyses the achievements of past research on social competence from a pedagogical perspective. First, the concept and content of social competence are defined, and next, the components of emotional competence and their functions are discussed as important factors in the operation of social competence. This is followed by an analysis of social skills and abilities and a description of measurement practices. Finally, a discussion of methods used to foster social skills and abilities concludes the paper.
