Get ready for your U.S. Citizenship Interview!

Sep 26, 2017

Every week, we bring you practice interviews, quizzes, resources, and the latest news that help you get ready for your US citizenship interview.

Today we are going to listen to out fourth Citizenship Quiz in Honor of Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept 15 to Oct 15). The first three quizzes were multiple choice, but this quiz is a bit different. You will hear three readings: short, medium, and long about Hispanic-American history, and then you will answer ten USCIS civics questions.
