IBC - A Modern Tower of Babel

The International Braodcast Center now resembles a modern-day Tower of Babel. In the Bible, a tower was built in an attempt to reach heaven. As a consequence, God "confounded the languages" of all the people there. The variety of languages has become evident at IBC. One can stand in one spot at Main Dining and listen to Brazilians, Chinese, French, Spanish, Germans, Iranians, Malaysians, Japanese, and many, many more - more than 200 nations (and languages) represented - all at one time.

Even listening to English is an adventure. There are Americans, but there are Australians, English, Scotish, Irish, South African, and others, all having their own, unique accents and vocabulary.

This is an amazing, world-class experience...
