Happy Spring! Before we begin today's interview, I encourage you to visit the updated uscis.gov homepage. Of particular note are their self-service tools under the Tool header. You can easily file your N-400 online, check your case status, check application processing times, and access many other services.
In honor of Persian New Year, we are going to revisit an
practice Citizenship interview that I recorded in 2007 with a
fellow ESL teacher and great friend, Nilou from Isfahan, Iran.
Every year, Teacher Nilou sets up a Haft-Seen in her classroom, a
special table with seven fruits. Students enjoy learning about
Nowruz, a holiday that is widely celebrated in western Asia,
middle-eastern communities in America, and even in the White House.
