About my US Citizenship Test Prep Course Online
Americans by birth or by choice, we are all united by the common civic values expressed in our founding documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America. This common civic identity binds us together as one nation.
I created the US Citizenship Test Prep Course Online with these values in mind. My goal was to produce a course to help anyone who meets all the legal requirements – and is ready to apply for US Citizenship through the Naturalization process, to be better prepared and become a more confident candidate. I also wanted to provide everyone with all the tools and information needed to begin the application process in one place, available 24/7, and accessible from any device.
I know from my own personal experience how difficult and exhausting the whole preparation process is. After a long 9-year period (1 as immigrant with a working permit, 3 as a green card holder, and 5 as full time resident) I could finally file my application for naturalization. So I made this choice and became a naturalized US citizen in 2007. Trust me, it wasn’t easy.
As I began my own study for the naturalization interview and the English test, I had to use many study materials but couldn’t find a single product that could offer the depth and flexibility that I needed. After looking exhaustively at dozens of links on the Internet, and going through lots of resources on paper, I still wasn’t getting enough quality practice for both; the Naturalization Interview and the English Test. My limited study time pushed me to use any free time for study and practice. I listened to recorded audio and did most of my reading while commuting to and from work. My spouse and a few of our close friends became my go-to sources for explanations. I even asked colleagues at work to join me for lunch or coffee breaks to help me study. I would have them quiz me and correct my wrong answers over and over again. This went on for months.
I want you to avoid going about your preparation the way I did it. This is why I wrote this course organizing its content into manageable, self-contained lessons that provide lots of practice opportunities for inferring, repetition, memorization, reviewing, and self-assessment. Throughout the entire course, I carefully recycled key concepts and important information that can appear in your own interview, as well as the English test. For expansion and deep learning, I have included in each lesson featured links to authentic and official sources such as USCIS.gov, Whitehouse.gov, History.com, and many others, and embedded high-quality audiovisual media elements right into the lessons in order to offer a rich-media learning experience for everyone.
I sincerely hope you enjoy preparing for your interview and test with this course, and I want to congratulate you for making the choice of becoming an American citizen.
