Interview can occur in English or the native language of the country.

How do you communicate?


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

How long have you been married? They may question the authenticity of your marriage if you can't really communicate

I had similar concerns for my husband's CR-1 visa interview in Rio back in June.  His English is not very good and my Portuguese is very basic.  I have been learning as much as possible since we met two years ago, and can speak and understand most of the basics in Portuguese.  We communicate in Portuguese when we are together and do pretty well and rarely need Google Translate these days.  For his interview, I went with him since it is allowed in Rio and we have a big age gap so I wanted to be there to support him and to demonstrate to the CO that our relationship is real.  The interview went very well, the CO asked my husband two simple questions in Portuguese (when did you first meet, who asked the other to get married), and asked me two questions in English (what do you do for work, how long have you been in this profession).  Plus she heard us speaking Portuguese to each other.  Most likely the CO in the DR will be fluent in both Spanish and English so you should be fine.  Good luck with the interview!
