From one of our tutors:
My student has never been to a traditional school. Despite the heavy restrictions on women's education, she was home schooled by her father in Afghanistan where she learned the basics of English reading and writing.
She set her sights on earning her citizenship after moving to the United States. We started our work on this preparation in April 2021, with her interview set for September. When the test came, she passed the civics, reading, and writing parts but failed in the speaking part. When she had been asked if she had a spouse, she didn't know what to say because she had never heard the word "spouse" before.
Not allowing this setback to stop her, however, we continued to practice for the speaking part with the N400 questions in preparation for another interview set on December 1st.
I am now elated to report that she passed this test, and can now proudly say that she is a citizen of the United States!
