In Unit 1, you will meet Jean, your video guide to the course, and you’ll learn important information you need to know if you are thinking about becoming a U.S. Citizen. We’ll help you answer these questions:

Who can become a U.S. Citizen? Can I become a U.S. Citizen? How do I start the application for U.S. Citizenship? Where can I get help with my application?

Unit 1 will also explain situations where you might need to ask for legal help before you apply for citizenship and recommend organizations that can help you.

Unit 2: N-400 Interview Practice

In Unit 2, you’ll learn about what to expect at the naturalization interview at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office. During the interview, the officer asks many questions about the application for U.S. Citizenship (the N-400 form). You will learn the key words and grammar you need to understand the questions.

You’ll also listen to different ways that the officer might ask the questions and will practice giving different correct answers. At the end of every lesson, a video “officer” will ask you questions from the lesson and you can record yourself answering with your own information.

Unit 2 begins with a review of question words and short answers. It also introduces you to some questions that you may need to ask the officer if you don’t understand something.

After that, each lesson is based on a part of the N-400 form. You’ll listen to and practice answering questions about each part of the form, from basic information about your address and your employment, to questions about illegal activities you may have been involved in.
