    K1 Islamabad interview in Urdu

    Anyone who has given his / her interview in Urdu got approved? Because I heard someone if you not choose English they thinks that a person who is going to migrating doesn't know Urdu so that makes negative impact is that right?

    communicating with my girlfriend

    hey its nice to meet everyone, im new to the site. so im from Colorado, so im not an immigrant or looking to get a visa, however my girlfriend is from Venezuela and in the process of moving to Peru (i hope to marry her one day in the future when she finishes school). over the past couple months we have been communicating through IM via whatsapp, voice message, and video clips, i really love this girl...the only thing is that she speaks spanish, and i speak english, my spanish is bad but im still learning. also, we havent personally met yet, but i know that she is a real person haha. we message each other everyday but i have to rely on a translator when i talk to her for fear of her not understanding me. i asked her if she would be comfortable doing live video calls and she said yes! im super nervous about this because again my spanish is bad and im still learning and she is super beautiful. my question is how can we video chat and communicate effectively with each other while speaking different languages? any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
  3. I am the USC and my husband is filing for AOS.. however, he speaks limited english so I am preparing his papers.. My question is... Do we mark both Part 10 1b. and 2 or just 2? I speak a sufficient amount of Spanish but I don't necessarily feel comfortable saying I am fluent which is what they seem to require from an "interpreter".. am i the "interpreter" and "preparer" or just the "preparer"?

    Mumbai Interview Language Experiences

    Hello all, I read some 2011-2012 reviews that sounded like the translators there were belligerent to the interviewees. I'm hoping that's not the case still. I have 2 requests/questions on recent immigrant interview experiences at the Mumbai consulate regarding language. I hope it's ok if I tag @SatinderSabiee @kannan @KN18 @Bombayy @netri7 @austinr1984 in particular in this topic because I know you guys have been through Mumbai recently, and I think the results would help many to come. Others who can provide input are quite welcome, also! FIRST: My fiance was told by someone we'll refer to as "Travel Agent Uncle" that if he has his interview in Hindi, that at NO TIME should he say anything in English. What do you guys think about this? Is this true? I'm skeptical of this approach, especially because if for some reason there is a Hindi/English translator involved who miscommunicates or misrepresents answers to the CO, I think the interviewee should be able to clarify in English, if needed, rather than stay quiet. SECOND: If you or your spouse/fiance have been through the Mumbai consulate recently, could you take just a minute to reply to my little survey below? 1. What is your first language? 2. Do you speak/understand English, and if so, how would you rate your comfort level with it on a scale of 1 to 5? (5 being very comfortable, 1 being very uncomfortable? 3. What language was the interview in? 4. Was a translator involved, or did the CO themself interview you in the language of the interview? 5. If a translator was involved, how did they treat you? 6. Feel free to share other advice or observations on the language aspect of the interview here. BACKGROUND: My fiance speaks English, but he is much more comfortable with Hindi. He is planning to take the K1 interview in Hindi at Mumbai. At his B2 interview last year, he took it in English and felt that maybe there was some miscommunication between him and the CO. For the K1, we both want him to feel as comfortable and confident as possible. Thanks in advance for your feedback! Bahut shukriya!
  5. I'm from Norway an we just got our NOA2 approved and I have to collect a lot of the paperwork. Does anyone know what language my birth certificate needs to be in? I have my original one in Norwegian, but do I have to get a new one in English? Or will the embassy approve it in Norwegian?
