There are a number of differences that can present themselves as barrier when it comes to communication.  These differences can be present even within the same country, take the US for example, the dialects of the English language vary from north to south, as well as food and beverage choices within those regions; however you are still in the United States (Baack, 2012).  These variables and cultural differences become far greater when you compare various countries as we have learned from The Hofstede Center.
