As a Miami immigration lawyer and an Austin immigration lawyer, I always caution my clients who are applying for citizenship to study and prepare as much as possible for the citizenship test. Below are some frequently asked questions.

What are the components of the citizenship test?
All citizenship applicants must take an English and civics test unless you qualify for an exemption or waiver. The English test has three components: reading, writing, and speaking. The civics test covers important U.S. history and government topics. If you have any questions in regard to this, you should speak with a Miami immigration lawyer or an Austin immigration lawyer.

How will the speaking test be conducted?
Your ability to speak English will be determined by a USCIS Officer during your eligibility interview on Form N-400, Application for Naturalization. If you have any questions in regard to this, you should speak with a Miami immigration lawyer or an Austin immigration lawyer.

How will the reading test be conducted?
You must read aloud one out of three sentences correctly to demonstrate an ability to read in English. The Reading Test Vocabulary List (PDF, 185 KB) will help you study for the English reading portion of the naturalization test. The content focuses on civics and history topics. If you have any questions in regard to this, you should speak with a Miami immigration lawyer or an Austin immigration lawyer.

How will the writing test be conducted?
You must write one out of three sentences correctly to demonstrate an ability to write in English. The Writing Test Vocabulary List (PDF, 181 KB) will help you study for the English writing portion of the naturalization test. The content focuses on civics and history topics. If you have any questions in regard to this, you should speak with a Miami immigration lawyer or an Austin immigration lawyer.

How will the civics test be conducted?
There are 100 civics questions on the naturalization test (PDF, 295 KB). During your naturalization interview, you will be asked up to 10 questions from the list of 100 questions. You must answer correctly six (6) of the 10 questions to pass the civics test. If you have any questions in regard to this, you should speak with a Miami immigration lawyer or an Austin immigration lawyer.

What happens if I fail any one of the portions?
You have two opportunities to take the English and civics tests per application. If you fail any portion of the test during your first interview, you will be retested on the portion of the test that you failed between 60 and 90 days from the date of your initial interview. If you have any questions in regard to this, you should speak with a Miami immigration attorney or an Austin immigration attorney.

Do you have any tips for studying for the test?
On the naturalization test, some answers may change because of elections or political appointments. As you study for the test, make sure that you know the most current answers to the questions. Answer these questions with the name of the official who is serving at the time of your eligibility interview with USCIS. The USCIS officer will not accept an incorrect answer. If you have any questions in regard to this, you should speak with a Miami immigration lawyer or an Austin immigration lawyer.
