IELTS Speaking topic: A situation when you helped someone

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, let me tell you about a time when I helped someone not familiar. One day in the morning, I met a neighbour in the shop who was an old lady and also lived in the same building as me. She just bought a bag of rice and was ready to take the heavy bag home. I saw the bag was quite heavy and she was trying to life it up. I walked straightly to her, and told her 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.

    Thank you so much for writing these answers, that really help a lot. But I have a question about speaking part 2 coz I’ve seen some answers are short, and I’m not sure if that is ok, coz you know, part 2 requires us to talk for 2 minutes, so do you know if it is ok to have a short answer?

    Thank you.

      Well, in my opinion, most of my sample answers are about 200 words, which is long enough for part 2, because you don’t actually have lots of time to talk in the exam.
