Describe a situation or a time when you helped someone
You should say:
- What the situation was
- Who the person was
- How you helped them
- And explain how you felt after helping them
Well, my neighbor is an old lady living with her son in the room next to mine. She is not very old but she always daggers along on the road. She is alone at home in the day time because her son is working at the office, and she has no grandson to look after. Every time we meet in the corridor, she is likely to talk with me about her son and have quite a chat with me for a while. I think she really needs a company.
One day in the mommy, I bumped into her in the shop where she just bought a large pack of instant noodles and was ready to take the heavy box home. I walked straight to her, and told that I could help her with that big object. She was very thankful and agreed to accept my kindness. I could feel that she really hoped someone could pop up and do her a favor at that moment.
The box was quite heavy and it took us ten minutes to move back home. I took the box directly to her doorstep, and helped open the door and brought it in for her. She really appreciated my offer and wanted to give me some gifts, but I refused. I believe that helping elder people is a kind virtue. Besides, getting along well with neighbors is also very important to lead a happy life.
QUESTIONS FOR PART 3
Do you like helping others?
Yes, definitely. I always hold a belief that every person has a moral responsibility fro do others a favor; it is a kind of give and take. Only by lending others a hand can we expect something in return. For example, if you lend a pen to your classmate, when yours runs out of ink, the others will lend you back, for sure I believe
How can we encourage children to help others?
There is a couple of effective ways that we can help children become helpful citizens. Firstly, it is the responsibility of both parents and schools. They should make them realize that if they help a needy person, the action would mean pretty much to that person. For example, children should learn how yield their seat to the elderly on the bus or take a blind person across the street. Secondly, adults themselves should set a good role model for their children to follow. Otherwise, their words and advice will turn useless.
Do you think people are less willing to help others these days, compared to the past? Why?/Why not?
Yes, I have to admit the fact that modem people show an increasing unwillingness to lend a helping hand to their surrounding needy people in the past, people helped others out of good will and intention and were often considerate and thoughtful of others. Yet. nowadays assistance is carefully calculated to extract certain benefit. It is saddening to say hut people today tend to Alienate themselves from others, fret alone help them. However, it is good news to see many others are pretty eager and try to be helpful when there is someone calling for them.
How do people in your community help one another?
Usually the help a person can give takes a variety of forms. Like taking an elderly person across a street, helping one’s neighbors water the plants or do the babysitting when the hosts are away. Such actions are simple yet they can prove extremely helpful to a needy person.
How can or do charitable organizations help people?
The aim of a charitable organization is to help alleviate the sufferings of those unfortunate or under privileged. By supplying relief food for flood-stricken people, or providing vocational training for the unemployed, charity has been playing a key role in bridging the gap between the rich and the poor, helping others to turn a new leaf in their life.
What are some examples of such organizations in your country?
The Red Cross, for example, has been actively involved in providing timely assistance to many people in my country. Besides, schools and the local authorities usually join hands to hold some donation campaigns, stuff like clothes, books have been greatly helpful to the needy. Even churches and pagodas have activities that benefit those unfortunate: trips to orphanages or visits to nursing homes, and so on. These are just a few of the courses of actions the community takes to Relieve the sufferings of others.
