Voices of Freedom meets the guidelines of the new citizenship test.

This accessible content-based text for beginners includes carefully sequenced lessons that integrate essential government and history topics with basic vocabulary and grammar. The text prepares students for the redesigned test’s focus on concepts of democracy and the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.

New illustrations make the subject matter memorable, illustrating not only the history and government concepts but the citizenship application process as well. Using the text’s active methodology, students develop the communication skills they need to demonstrate their English language skills and civics knowledge at the naturalization interview.
