2. Pass a Civics test. 100 known questions (though some are temporaneous, e.g. names of currently officials), you are asked ten at random and must get six right. It is NOT multiple choice — answers are given verbally which is how your spoken English is reviewed.
As the * in the first tweet indicated there are some exceptions, BUT, only to the English language portion.
If you are 50+ and have lived in the US for 20+ years, or 55/15+, you are exempt.
You MUST still take the civics exam, but may do so in your natural language. HOWEVER:
It is your responsibility for bringing an interpreter with you, which I'm sure is an undue burden on some, and could be the entire reason they never become a citizen. If anyone knows interpreter resources I can share, please pass them along!
