Web Proxy Online Gives English Language Web to English Learners
idcloak’s web proxy online represents a valuable free tool for students of English language and Anglophone cultures. By rerouting their connection to an American or British server, they will find all pages displayed in English language and tailored to US or UK cultures.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 15, 2013
This week idcloak releases its web proxy online – a free tool for connecting to the internet from different countries around the world. Although the proxy is conventionally used to bypass internet blocks, idcloak’s Robin Welles says the service is also ideal for learners of the English language and culture.
“One of the best ways to learn a language is through purposeful interaction in real-life contexts,” says Welles. “Because so much of our interaction is now carried out over the internet, English learners need to experience the net as fully as possibly in that language. The web is as valid a context for language learning as, say, a party, a business meeting or a restaurant.”
An issue faced by learners of English is that the internet in their home country defaults to the local language. Some sites may offer the option of English versions but often with a reduction in content and poor translations.
Welles believes that idcloak’s US and UK servers can potentially serve as a valuable educational tool to foreign-based learners of English, “By connecting to a proxy on English-speaking soil, the user can guarantee all pages will show up in English as written by native-speaking professionals and marketers. Users who aren’t able to travel to go to an English speaking country in person may still go there electronically.”
The fact a user may choose between UK and US internet might also be of interest to those studying British or American culture. “The web is a different place in the US and UK,” says Welles, “different YouTube recommendations, search results and, of course, advertising. Proxy users can learn a lot about the cultural peculiarities of these two nations simply by viewing the internet through their eyes.”
idcloak offers separate IP proxy lists for connection to almost any other country in the world, and therefore any language. Learners of Russian might use the Russian proxy list and students of Chinese a China proxy.
