How to Study for Your Citizenship Interview
- The USCIS N-400: Download the USCIS N-400 Application for Naturalization from https://www.uscis.gov/n-400. Fill it out. (Don't fill in your SSN on your practice copy). Study the questions, the key vocabulary, and your answers.
- USCIS Social Media: Follow USCIS.gov & USCIS.gov/es on Facebook and Twitter.
- The USCIS Citizenship Resource Center: Try all the USCIS English and Civics tests resources at https://www.uscis.gov/citizenship/learners/study-test
- Flash Cards: Download the USCIS Civics and English flash cards. Review the citizenship vocabulary sets on Quizlet.
- Videos: Check out the new USCIS: Civics Playlist which has one video for each question. Follow-up by watching all the videos and take all the quizzes from Preparing for the Oath. Also look for videos of mock citizenship interviews on YouTube.
- Study-Buddy: Find a "study-buddy." Meet regularly. If you can't meet in person, use Skype or Facetime for 15 minutes every day. Ask each other the N-400 and civics questions.
- Citizenship Class: Go to a citizenship class at your local adult school, library, church, or community. If there is no class, start a self-study group. Students learn more by talking and working with each other.
- Online Classes via your Library Card: Ask your local library for access to subscription databases that offer free online Citizenship classes via your library card. For example: Pronunciator's ProCitizen is similar to SI.edu Preparing for the Oath; and Learning Express has Citizenship Classes in English and Spanish. Be careful: these online classes focus on the civics questions and you must also learn about the N-400.
- More English! If you need more help with your English, check out the resources on USA Learns, VOA Learning English, or Cambridge Ventures Arcade. Or sign up for an ESL or English conversation class.
- US Citizenship Podcast: Check out the blog at uscitizenpod.com every day for new citizenship resources. You can also download the free US Citizenship Podcast app for iPhone/iPad: goo.gl/dLiOAE or Android: https://goo.gl/d6rs9f or subscribe to the podcast via iTunes: https://goo.gl/BVrqHQ and most importantly, practice the dialogues in this website.
Good Luck! I know that you will be a great American Citizen!
