Taking the civics test for naturalizationThese are sample written questions for the new citizenship test. Understand that the examiner can make up an sentence to be written. However, they are always simple sentences.. The official vocabulary that is used to construct the sentences is available at the USCIS website.

Unfortunately USCIS does not publish sample sentences for the writing portion of the new naturalization test. These questions are from prior client interviews.

At the interview the examiner will review the application in detail, checking it for accuracy and completeness. He may request certain documents such as divorce decrees and documents regarding any criminal records.

You will then be tested on your ability to read and write English. You will have to have at least a rudimentary knowledge of conversational English as well as be able to write simple sentences.
