IELTS Speaking topic: Helping a neighbour

Describe a neighbour you ever helped.
You should say:
who this person is
when you helped this person
how you helped this person
and explain why you helped this person.

Well, my nearest neighbour is an old lady living with her son. She is not very old actually but she always staggers along on the road. She is alone at home in the daytime as her son is working at 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 family and play with my little boy for a while. I think she really needs a company.

One day in the morning, I met her in the shop who just bought a bag of rice and was ready to take the heavy bag home. I walked straightly to her, and told that I could help her take the bag home. She was very thankful and agreed to accept my kindness. I could feel that she really hope someone could stand out and do her a favour at that moment.

The bag was quite heavy and it took us ten minutes to move back home. I took the bag directly to her home, and helped pour the entire rice into the bucket. She really appreciated my offer and wanted to give me some gifts, but I refused. I guessed that helping elder people is a kind of virtue in China; besides, getting alone well with neighbour is also very important to lead a happy life.
