US Naturalization Speaking Interview! TEST YOURSELF?

​According to U.S. Federal Law, to become an American Citizen through the Naturalization Process, an applicant must demonstrate “an understanding of the English language, including an ability to read, write, and speak... simple words and phrases... in ordinary usage in the English language.”

This means that an applicant must be able to read, write, and speak basic English in order to be eligible for naturalization. An applicant is required to pass each of the three components of the English test.

During the naturalization interview, a USCIS officer will determine your ability to speak English. Here is what an applicant can expect during the Speaking Portion of the Naturalization process.

US Naturalization Speaking Interview:

USCIS Officer:          Good morning, please take a seat.

Applicant:                   Good morning.


USCIS Officer:          Can you please provide me with your name and your A-number?

Applicant:                   My name is John Smith, and my A-number is A123456789.


USCIS Officer:          Thank you. Can you confirm that you are here today for your                                                                    naturalization interview?

Applicant:                   Yes, I am.


USCIS Officer:          Okay, let's begin. Have you traveled outside of the United States in the                                                past five years?

Applicant:                   Yes, I have. I went to Canada last year for a family vacation.

Applicant:                    No, I didn't have any trouble.


USCIS Officer:           Have you ever been arrested or convicted of a crime?

Applicant:                   No, I have not.

Applicant:                    "I can't go to the party because I have to work."


USCIS Officer:           Excellent. Now, let's move on to the reading and writing portion of the                                                test. Please read the sentence on the screen.

Applicant:                   "The flag of the United States has fifty stars."


USCIS Officer:           Great. Now please write the sentence "I will vote in the election" on this                                              piece of paper.

Congratulations, and welcome to the United States of                                            America!
