Can I Take My Citizenship Test In My Native Language?—Maybe

Many Lawful Permanent Residents have not learned English but they want to become United States Citizens. Here are the rules:

If you want to do your Naturalization interview in your native language, you must be at least 55 years old and have been a Lawful Permanent Resident for at least 15 years, or,

You must be at least 50 years old and have been a Lawful Permanent Resident for at least 20 years.

Remember, it will only be the English language requirement that will be waived. In these situations, the applicant will still need to answer the Civics and History questions.

So what can you do to brighten your prospects for passing the interview if you do not know very much English? Here is some help.

First, practice the informational questions that appear on the applications. Make sure that you can answer questions in English about your name, address, social security number, family members etc.

Second, all of the questions that can be asked come from the application. Practice the questions and answers in English. Most of the answers will be “no.” Only the last few answers about taking the oath of allegiance will be “yes.”

For the Civics and History questions, all of the questions are available on the USCIS website. There are 100 possible questions. Practice those.

Finally, the officer will ask you to read a sentence. This will be a question taken from the Civic and History list. Then the officer will ask you to answer the questions and will tell you what to write. These words will be similar to any simple answer to that question you have practiced before.

Although it is not easy, all of the English words you need to know to pass your Naturalization exam are right in front of you. You can do it!
