Abstract: Ninety-two children of 9-11 years old were measured on Faux Pas comprehension, social interacting skill and language ability. The task was developed to measure individuals’understanding of epistemo logical mental state, emotion and desire. Children’s social skill was measured using the method of Peer-Rated Social-Interaction Skill. Language ability was assessed with Wechsler Child Intelligence Scale-Revised (Chinese version). The results show significant correlations between Faux Pas comprehension and social interaction skill, and between Faux Pas comprehension and language ability, after controlling for age. Regression analysis show a bidirectional relationship between Faux Pas comprehension and social interaction skill. Hierarchical regression analysis show that language ability is a fully mediated factor in the relationship between Faux Pas comprehension and social interaction skill.
