In honor of the partnership with Welcoming Week and NPNA’s We’re Ready! campaign, USAHello expands its free offerings to support efforts to naturalize 2 million by 2022.
Sept 14, 2021, USA — USAHello is pleased to now offer citizenship test question & answer videos as part of our free study materials. The videos are currently available in Spanish and Arabic with more languages being added this month. The videos offer the text of each question in both English and a translated language, with a voice of a native speaker reading each aloud.
This provides aspiring citizens the benefit of studying in their native language while also hearing it spoken in English, helping build confidence and opportunities for success! The videos complement existing citizenship resources including our free online citizenship class and popular downloadable PDFs of the test questions and answers in 15 languages already used by over 200k people this year.

“On this Citizenship Day, we’re collaborating with over 100 cities and counties and over 50 immigrant and refugee advocacy organizations to encourage the nearly 9 million eligible lawful permanent residents to take the step and naturalize, with a goal to #Naturalize2Millionby2022. USAHello’s study materials are a welcomed addition to our efforts.” – Magaly Arteaga, Program & Training Manager, National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA)
