Barton Community College will offer free citizenship classes from 10 a.m. to noon and 7-9 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting on Tuesday, Nov. 3 at the Center for Adult Education, 1025 Main St., Great Bend in room 208.
The 10-week program will provide all the necessary information and practice for passing the citizenship test and interview. There is no cost for the class, but there is a $20 textbook fee. In addition to the coursework, prospective citizens must file the N-400 form with the United Citizenship and Immigration Services Department. The class includes assistance with the form. To aid Spanish speakers, the sessions of this class will be translated into Spanish.
Instructor Doris Reile said the course is designed to assist permanent residents of any nationality who want to obtain their U.S. citizenship through naturalization or are just interested in learning about the United States, geography and civics. She also said taking these courses will help improve English-speaking skills.
