Prepare for the US Citizenship interview by completing a series of ten interviews based on the USCIS N-400 Application for Naturalization (released 03/26/16 and expires 03/31/19). The first interview includes five basic questions in Simple English that represents the N-400 sections 1 through 12 matched with five USCIS Civics questions; the subsequent interviews expand on these questions and gradually introduce new vocabulary and grammar patterns. Also included are a ESL/Citizenship resource list, a special chapter entitled "How to Study for Your Citizenship Interview." Updated January 20, 2017 with two new glossaries and civics information.
