Citizenship Test: Sentence Writing Practice

How do I practice for the writing part of the Naturalization Exam?

Now that you have studied for the civics part of the Naturalization interview and learned  all 100 of the USCIS test questions and answers by using either the study guide’s citizenship test flashcards or citizenship test quizzes to prepare, concentrating on another part of the naturalization exam, the writing part, comes next. Our citizenship study guide’s writing exercises will help do just that!

To pass the writing part of the US citizenship test, you must show the USCIS officer that you have an ability to write one out of three sentences correctly in English. Many applicants are concerned about the writing part of the naturalization exam, fearing that their spelling, capitalization or punctuation will cause them to fail.   According to the USCIS website pertaining to how the writing aspect of the citizenship test is scored, the following applies:

An applicant shall not be failed because of spelling, capitalization, or punctuation errors unless the errors would prevent understanding the meaning of the sentence.

You will not be failed on the written part of the naturalization exam for spelling, capitalization or punctuation errors as long as the written meaning of the sentence is understandable.

Although we do not know the exact sentence you will be asked to write for the USCIS officer, we do know all the USCIS vocabulary that can be used. Based on that vocabulary, we created audio citizenship writing exercises of sample sentences. A sample sentence is verbally given and a writing space is provided.

Here are some examples of the citizenship sentences found in the writing exercises based on the USCIS vocabulary:

  • "The President lives in the White House."
  • "Washington is the Father of Our Country."
  • "We elect the President in November."
  • "The capital of the United States is Washington D.C."
  • "There are one hundred Senators in Congress."
  • "The flag is red, white and blue."

The citizenship test writing exercises contain samples of all the USCIS vocabulary that can be used. With over 50 sentences to practice with by listening to and writing each of those, you will have learned all the words necessary and structure to help you pass the writing part of the US Citizenship test.
