What to Expect During the U.S. Citizenship Test

The U.S. citizenship exam includes portions that will test your fluency in English, including your ability to read, write, and speak. The citizenship exam also includes questions that test your knowledge and understanding of U.S. history and government.
Your U.S. civics test will include an interview. During your interview, a USCIS officer will test your ability to read, write, and speak English.

On the U.S. citizenship test, your English communication skills will be tested in the following ways:

  • Reading: To test your ability to read in English, you must read one sentence, out of three sentences, in a manner suggesting to the USCIS officer that you understand the meaning of the sentence.
  • Writing: To test your ability to write in English, you must write one sentence, out of three sentences, in a manner that would be understandable as written to the USCIS officer.
  • Speaking: Your ability to speak English is determined by your answers to questions normally asked by USCIS officers during the naturalization eligibility interview on Form N-400.

At your interview, a USCIS officer will ask to see your identification, place you under oath, and ask you about:

  • Your background
  • Evidence supporting your case
  • Your place and length of residence
  • Your character
  • Your attachment to the Constitution and
  • Your willingness to take an Oath of Allegiance
