The U.S. Constitution was signed September 17, 1787, so each year we celebrate Constitution and Citizenship Day. As we reflect on that historic event, it's worth noting that citizenship is especially complicated for people who have newly arrived in our country.
CPL helps those on the path to citizenship who may be learning English, studying for the citizenship exam or needing to connect with professional help.
Most immigrants come from countries where English is not an official language. Here are a few examples of the many books we have to help with practicing English language skills.
You can also learn English online with Mango Languages.
We also have U.S. citizenship exam study guides in multiple languages.
You can also take practice exams online using Brainfuse.
