This preparation course is designed to help prepare adult immigrants at the low beginning ESL level to successfully complete the naturalization process. This preparation includes developing English language skills and civics content knowledge, and learning about the Form N-400 and the naturalization interview. The course will follow a sheltered instruction approach in which civics lessons from the USCIS Citizenship Resource Center provide the outline for the scope and sequence. ESL and naturalization instruction are woven throughout the lessons and activities in the course. Students will build knowledge and skills through scaffolded instructional activities and they can expect to be speaking, reading, and writing in English in every class

The test is administered by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, or USCIS, creates and administers the exam. It has two parts: a language section where applicants have to read, speak, and write in English, and a civics portion with 100 possible questions. Applicants are asked 10 of them and must get six right.
