Well, I don't go out much, so I don't have many opportunities to help others. But, I would like to talk about a situation when I helped a kid in my neighbourhood. It was very late one night, and I was wandering around my neighbourhood, when I heard the crying of what sounded like a terrified child.
As I approached the boy, I recognized it was Huy, one of the kids living in my neighbourhood. I immediately approached him and tried to find out what had happened to him. It turned out that he had sprained his ankle and couldn't walk home. He told me that his bike had been violently stolen from him, and that he had become injured while chasing the criminals.I tried to calm him down and told him to call his family to tell them what had happened. However, his phone was also broken because of the fall. So, I lent him a helping hand by letting him use my phone to contact his parents. After that, I took him home on my bike. I remember that he was crying during the whole trip, which is something that I've never experienced before.
Once I got him back safe and sound to his parents, they listened to the whole story and thanked me a lot. It really felt great to be able to do such a noble thing like that.

IELTS Speaking Part 3 Sample
Do you often help kids?
Well, I don’t go out much, so I don’t help people very frequently. But if the chance arises, I would love to give someone a hand. For example, whenever my nephews visit, I usually spend lots of time with them, helping them as much as I can.
Give a hand / gɪv ə hænd / (idiom): giúp đỡ
Ví dụ: I went over to see if I could give a hand.
Do you think it is necessary for people to do voluntary work?
I think so. It really helps to make our community a better place. There are lots of poor souls out there who are really in desperate need of help. So, I think we could all contribute a bit of our effort to a philanthropic cause sometime. I think that being a volunteer enables people to help others in a selfless way, which can make their life more enjoyable and satisfying.
Philanthropic /ˌfɪlənˈθrɑːpɪk/ (adj): liên quan đến từ thiện
Ví dụ: She works for a philanthropic organisation
Selfless /ˈselfləs/ (adj): vị tha
Ví dụ: She has a life of selfless service to the community
What can schools do to make students more aware of the benefits of volunteering?
Well I think that schools should teach children about the impact that each individual can have in making the world a better place. Children should understand that they are a part of their community, and everything they do should be for the sake of it. By teaching them their responsibility and duty, schools can certainly raise children’s awareness of the benefits of volunteering.
For the sake of something/somebody (idiom): giúp đỡ ai đó/cái gì đó
Ví dụ: They stayed together for the sake of the children.
Who benefits more from the volunteer services, the volunteers or the people helped?
Both parties can benefit. Volunteers will gain a sense of solidarity and achievement, while those who are helped can receive physical, mental, and financial support. I guess it’s more important for underprivileged people, as help from others sometimes can lift them out of poverty and change their life tremendously.
Underprivileged /ˌʌndərˈprɪvəlɪdʒd/: thiếu may mắn
Ví dụ: The party aims to represent the interests of the underprivileged sections of society.
Lift /lɪft/: kéo ra khỏi
Ví dụ: The best way to lift nations out of poverty is through trade.
