Today’s Word: hinder

This month we are looking at Cultural Gap as a topic. A quick search on Google shows that “A cultural gap is any systemic difference between two cultures which hinders mutual understanding or relations.” This is a perfect example of how to use today’s word! If something hinders you, it makes it more difficult for you to do something or to make progress.

According to Google, the differences that might hinder mutual understanding are things like the values, behavior, education, and customs of the respective cultures. Do you agree with this? Is there anything else you would add? What kinds of things do you think might hinder mutual understanding?
