  • Future interview in English for my brother?

    I am a U.S. citizen filing for I-130 for my brother. He and his family currently live outside the U.S.
    Would his future interview be conducted in English? Would he be denied if he doesn't speak good English? What questions would they ask him? I know it takes 10-12 years, so his interview won't be occuring until then? Would it help if I fly back to join him for the interview?
    Many thanks for your kind reply. I would be very grateful.

      thanks

      What if he only speaks very little English or no English at all? Many thanks! Would a translator be allowed?

        Yes, most consulates allow a translator if the GC applicant speks little or no English.

          I know that translators are available, but if he intents to immigrate to US, maybe it's a good idea to start learning English?
