Jean Finds Out About the Requirements for U.S. Citizenship
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Jean comes from France. He would like to become a U.S. citizen. He is meeting with an official from the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services center. He wants to find out what the requirements for citizenship are.
 
2     "Good morning, I'm Mr. Smith; I'll be answering your questions about citizenship requirements," Mr. Smith says, shaking Jean's hand.
 
3     "Hello, Mr. Smith, I am Jean Blanc. Thank you for seeing me today," Jean says.
 
4     "I'm glad to meet you," Mr. Smith tells him. "Let's get started. What questions do you have?"
 
5     "Well, first of all, I want to know if I am able to become a U.S. citizen," Jean says.
 
6     "Are you at least 18 years old?" Mr. Smith asks.
 
7     "Yes, I just turned 23 last month," Jean tells him.
 
8     "Good. Have you been a legal permanent resident for at least five years?" Mr. Smith asks.
 
9     "Yes, I have," Jean replies.
 
10     "The other requirements are that you have good moral character and can read and speak English," Mr. Smith tells Jean.
 
11     "I think I can pass those requirements," Jean says. "I haven't broken any laws. And I know English very well."
 
12     "Great, you're on your way to becoming a citizen," Mr. Smith says. "You will also have to pass a test and take an oath of allegiance."
 
13     "What's an oath of allegiance?" Jean asks.
 
14     "You must swear to be loyal to this country, obey its laws, and defend it if you are needed," Mr. Smith explains.
