concept
Exercise 1 - Understanding meaning
A concept is a general idea or mental representation of something. Our concepts are based on our experiences and on what we know about examples of that concept.

For example:

It is hard for children to understand a complex concept such as 'democracy', but they can understand simple concepts like 'good' and 'bad' which are relevant to children's lives.

An abstract concept such as "truth" or "beauty" can be hard to understand and different people may understand the same concepts differently.
