IELTS Cue Card Sample 291 - Describe a neighbour who helps other people

IELTS Speaking Part 2: IELTS Cue Card/ Candidate Task Card.

Describe a neighbour who helps other people.

You should say:

  • who is s/he
  • how you know him/ her
  • how often you meet

and explain how this neighbour helps other.

Model Answer:
I live in a metropolitan city where people mostly lead a busy life. We do not know all the neighbours in our locality and yet I am lucky to have many nice neighbours for their amiable behaviours, sense of responsibilities and benevolent mentality. Among them, Mr. Kruse (…or say a name you like…) is a person who frequently extends his helping hand to others. He is a doctor and in fact a very famous one. He is a devoted doctor who often helps people with his service and he has a good reputation as a good and kind doctor. I have noticed many times that he does not impose a fixed fee for the poor patients.

He has been living in our community for the last 5-6 years and I often meet him in the evening while we both get out for a stroll in the nearby park. I visited his chamber for professional advice regarding the health issue I had and took my family members to him as well. To my surprise, he gave an utmost importance to our issues, unlike other doctors we have seen, and prescribed some really helpful therapy and medicines.

Usually, the doctors in our city have a tendency to charge a large amount of money to the visiting patients and do not care for the paying capability of the poor patients. But Mr. Kruse is an exception to that. With his professional skill and reputation he could have amassed a fortune for him and for his family but because of his benevolent and kind nature, he is still leading a mediocre but happy life. From my conversation with him, I realised that he puts more priority in helping others than earning money.

He sometimes even sacrifices his own conform and family needs to visit a patient who can’t come to his chamber. Thus he has sought to help others and that’s a great virtue we do not see very often. In my opinion, he is the most helpful neighbour I have ever had.
