I’m curious about the citizenship process. Don’t immigrants need to learn English to become citizens? I’ve noticed some employees at Walmart who don’t speak English.
Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs) are not required to be fluent in English. Basic English proficiency is generally sufficient for naturalization, unless you qualify for exemptions. When it comes to finding employment without English language skills, individuals seek employers who can make accommodations. In many areas, particularly those with a significant Spanish-speaking population, it’s possible to work and get by using only Spanish.
You don’t have to become a citizen to legally live and work in the USA as a green card holder.
The situation is similar for legal migrants in other countries. It’s not uncommon for American expatriates in Europe to have a very limited, if any, understanding of the local language, yet many of them are employed.
Citizenship exam is not particularly tricky, you just need to read a line from the screen and type in the answer for a question. It does not test your every-day language fluency.
