Default Anyone know how to get websites to think im still in the US?

I'm from the US, but I am studying abroad in Barcelona for this semester.

Many websites show up in spanish rather than in English, since I am in Spain.

Does anyone know how I could trick the websites to think that I am still in the US?

Is that even possible?

thanks a lot!

-Charlie

usually the website themselves will have options you can change if the language changes do to location.

well..you could try a proxy server..i honestly don't know if it'll redirect you any differently though, but idk.....i guess for as long as i can remember, if it was regular ".com" it would in most cases be in english...i figured that stuff like ".ru" or ".jp" were the only way it would change (for the most part) sites to the respective russian and japanese languages..but i have no clue :-|
