Reading/Writing Vocabulary for Naturalization Test

The naturalization test has three components of the English test: speaking, reading and writing. The speaking portion of the English test is the same as the earlier test. An applicant’s ability to speak English is determined by the USCIS officer from the applicant’s answers to questions normally asked during the eligibility interview on the Application for Naturalization, Form N-400. Modifications were made to the new reading and writing tests. The sentences included on the new reading and writing tests will not be made publicly available. The USCIS released reading and writing vocabulary lists containing all the words found in the new English reading and writing tests. Applicants can use the vocabulary lists to study. Applicants must read 1 out of 3 items correctly to pass the reading test. Applicants must write 1 out of 3 items correctly to pass the writing test. To increase the meaningfulness of the reading and writing tests, the content of the reading and writing questions are civics-based.
