A few days ago on a whim while I was thinking of the things I have not done and would like to do, I wrote off to some Spanish immersion schools. Most of them are a bit too "studenty" sounding, ie. meant for 18 year olds. But what the hell. It wouldn't really matter; I just thought some structure and a week or two of immersion would be good for my Spanish.
I got this reply from one school, after I wrote to ask them if there was an elevator in their building. The photos on the web site made it look like a building on a flat street without stairs and it was multi-story. So, I asked, and got this answer:
The Institute and the some host families are wheelchair friendly... the only problem is the City of Puebla. The city of Puebla is not friendly at all so that is the reason that we do not accept students that are in the need of a wheelchair.
Don't you love the part about how they're wheelchair-friendly? So friendly that they don't accept wheelchair-using students!
Now that's friendly!
The whole Ciudad de Puebla -- friendly!
I wrote back to say that they should not make a policy not to accept disabled students. Instead, they should provide specific information about the buildings and town, and let people make their own decisions.
