Requirements of English tests in the US

Usually, to become US citizens, immigrants need to give an English test in order to understand how good they are in writing, reading, and understanding English. And also how well they understand the history of the United States and its government. The government has been allowing immigrants with disabilities since 1994 to get waivers for citizenship requirements.
