At the end of the news, we suggest that you try your hand at passing the citizenship test, but first, let's figure out the process.

English exam

The English exam consists of three parts, each of which assesses the applicant’s ability to understand the language and use it in everyday life.

During the Speaking test, the immigration officer asks several questions about the applicant based on information from his citizenship application. It is not necessary to have perfect pronunciation or speak without mistakes - the ability to understand English in general is assessed. You may be asked as basic questions, like How old are you?more complex ones, for example, Have you ever applied for US citizenship in the past?

To check the reading (Reading test) and writing (Writing test), the applicant is given a tablet and asked to read three sentences in English, and then write the other three sentences under dictation. For the passage, it is enough to correctly read and write just one sentence. The words that are found in the sentences are quite simple and the knowledge of English obtained at school should be enough, if, of course, you really learned it and did not forget it before moving.

All words can be learned in advance - on the website of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) there are two lists of vocabulary that are found in tasks: for reading verification и for a written test.

All questions with answers for this test is publicly available on the USCIS website, there is also video and audio materials for training. Questions are asked only from this list, there can be no unexpected topics. Out of a hundred questions, the immigration officer chooses only ten; to successfully pass the test, six must be answered correctly. As soon as the necessary number of answers has accumulated, the exam is stopped and the remaining questions are not asked.

The questions are divided into three large thematic groups: the American government, American history (geography), and civilian life. They are asked in English, no answers are offered. Most of them are simple, but some require prior preparation, especially those relating to US history.

In certain cases, there may be several correct answers, then you need to name as many as asked in the question. For instance, Name one of the two longest rivers in the United States (Name one of the two longest rivers in the USA). The correct answer may be Missouri or Mississippi, and you need to name just one of these rivers.
