When it is time for your appointment, the USCIS officer will come out to the waiting room to get you. The officer will call your name and then introduce himself or herself. The officer may ask you, “ສະ​ບາຍ​ດີ​ບໍ​?” Although it is not your official test yet, the officer is already testing your English language skills. So you will want to say something like, “I am well, ຂອບ​ໃຈ. ສະ​ບາຍ​ດີ​ບໍ​?” Then you will follow the officer to the citizenship interview room.
