Online Test Joins English Version to Expand Resources for Aspiring Citizens
WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) launched an online Spanish-language civics practice test today, joining the English version released earlier this year. The questions are presented in English with Spanish subtitles and focus on basic U.S. government and history topics. The goal is to help Spanish-speaking lawful permanent residents studying for the naturalization test with retaining the information and gaining a firmer grasp of English.
The civics test is normally conducted in English; however, certain applicants may be eligible to take the civics test in the language of their choice due to age and time as a permanent resident, a disability, or other exceptions and accommodations.
The practice tests were developed as part of the Task Force on New Americans initiatives and are available at my.uscis.gov, along with other resources to help navigate the immigration process. Tools available at myUSCIS include a locator to find English and citizenship classes, as well as options to determine eligibility to apply for naturalization.
USCIS is developing additional customer service features for myUSCIS. You can access myUSCIS on a mobile phone, computer, tablet or any other electronic device.
