IELTS Cue Card, September 2018: Someone You Helped In Studies.

Talk about someone whom you helped in studies. Please say

– Who was he/she?
– Why did you help him/her?
– How did you feel after that?


Invest one minute in brainstorming about this topic’s questions. If you’ve not read my advice on developing each answer in a proper way, please read the lesson on speaking.

PLUS, you can implement the idea of collocations in this answer. Here is the link to a truly useful article: Lessons in speaking – collocations.

I’ve always been an average student (collocation) and have never excelled in studies. However (cohesion), I love reading books and, once, our grade 10 English teacher assigned us the task of reading a book during the summer break. To my surprise (cohesion), Jeniffer, the topper in our class (modifier), approached me for help.

I agreed to help her for several reasons (collocation + organisation of content). Firstly (cohesion), she had been regularly teaching (collocation) me science and mathematics. This (cohesion) had helped me score well during the mid-terms. So (cohesion), this was an opportunity to pay back a friend who had selflessly helped (collocation) me. Secondly (cohesion), I love sharing my knowledge and experiences with others. I strongly believe (collocation) that this attitude is useful for others in learning new things and for me to make my concepts stronger (collocation).

I had a mixed feeling of excitement and pride. Since (cohesion) I was an average student (collocation), I was used to being asked for help. In this case, the topper had called out for help from me. It was a feeling of elation. I also felt happy for paying back to a friend.
