Writing test - spelling

The hub's interview is tomorrow and he is freaking out a bit over the writing test. His spelling in English is not great (neither was Hemingway's!), but mostly gets the point across. So, how strict are they on spelling? They are testing comprehension of English and not spelling for the most part, correct?

the officer will give him one question and answer (I think) to write. It can have some spelling mistakes as long as it's understandable, and not missing parts of the sentence. Have him review the 100 questions and the N400, they will ask him questions about that.

If you go to the uscis website they explain that.

Thanks, Aleful! Yep, he has the 100 question/answers completely under his belt. Just not a good speller! Good to hear it just needs to be understandable and not spelled like a spelling bee champion. :thumbs:

make sure he knows how to write the list of words they require for reading/writing... I think if he can get those correctly, then depending on the IO, they might ignore spelling mistakes.

Just want to add that on the Civics Lesson book they give us, the very back page, there's a "Writing Portion" that he can study. I just checked (had my interview yesterday) and most of the words in my writing test was found in it (except for the word George)! So tell him to review that!
