Citizenship Class

Citizenship Class

While the majority of the Hmong have been in the United States for more than 40 years; many Hmong refugees have still not been naturalized due to various reasons.  The Hmong fought for the United States during the Secret War in Laos and were forced to leave their homeland to avoid oppression; and started arriving in the US in the early 70’s.

The Hmong American Partnership of the Fox Cities serves refugees throughout the Fox Valley area and recognized the needs of some Hmong families to prepare for the US naturalization process.  Executive Director, Nao Bee Yang, holds an instructional class every Tuesday and Thursday from 6 pm to 8 pm for members of our Hmong community.  He graciously gives his time to help educate those who have limited English communication skills.  The goal is to work and practice all 100 questions by the end of the 10 week course, and hopefully maximize the chances of passing the actual US Naturalization test.

This class is part of an initiative from HAP to provide free and instructional workshops for members of the community.  Our objective is to invest back into our community by helping educate our citizens.

Call the Hmong American Partnership at 920-739-3192 to sign up for future classes or find out how you can assist to make a difference.

Tuesdays, we will start a new set of questions and review Thursdays.  We will work and practice all 100 questions by the end of the 10 weeks or however long it may take to complete all the questions. We will discuss the Reading and Written part of the test after we have completed all 100 questions.  We will talk about study techniques and what to listen for to identify key words when they give you the oral test.  We will work at your pace.  Come when you can, you don’t have to start from the beginning.  We have a Hmong student from UW-Oshkosh volunteer who can help you catch up if needed.

All sessions will be from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

You must attend all of the classes in order to prepare for the test.  It is NOT one class for one test.  There are 100 questions to learn and we will teach you all of the questions and answers in segments of 25 questions each Tuesday and then review each Thursday. We will discuss the oral and written as well as other aspects of the test during the last week of class.  Call the Hmong American Partnership at 920-739-3192 to sign-up for the class.
