Sample Answer of Describe a Time when You Helped a Friend
Well, many times I helped people in locating accommodation, finding vacancies as well as helping them in solving their personal as well as professional problems. Here I would like to speak about a time when I assisted my bosom friend, who had recently passed his graduation. Actually, he had a fear of public speaking, and he had to appear in an interview, but due to lack of confidence, he was not able to clear that interview. So he approached me.
As I told you that I am very conducive by nature, so I didn’t hesitate to help him because he was my creme de la creme. I taught him basic ingredients of foreign language and within two and half a month, he could speak English fluently and recently a couple of days back, I received a letter from my friend, and he thanked me for the valuable help that I provided him, and really I felt very happy to help him because I think it’s a moral obligation to help every people, who need help.
So I help the people without a hitch. So that was the time when I helped my friend, and now my friend is more confident, and he has been working in a multinational company, and he is earning handsome income. I really felt obliged to help others. So I think everyone must help others if one needs it.
Follow-Ups of Describe a Time when You Helped a Friend
Question 1:- How do people usually help each other?
Answer:- People usually help others in locating accommodation, finding jobs as well as solving their personal and professional problems. Sometimes people help others by giving them money when people really needs monetary help. So there are different ways of helping others.
Question 2:- How is online help different from real-life help?
Answer:- Well, help can be in any form. People can help others online, or sometimes they can help others by meeting them. I think if people help others online, they can send them greeting cards, best wishes as well as sometimes they can transfer money to their account when they need financial assistance. While meeting people physically is different from online help because people feel more emotionally strong and they have high morale. It shows that people really value their relationships.
Question 3:- Should schools be responsible for teaching students how to cooperate?
Answer:- Yes, of course, schools must teach students to corporate with others. Because school is the second home for the children and they learn valuable social skills and ethical values from schools. If they learn from a very early age to assist others and to corporate with others, and adjust in difficult situations, then they would not have any problem in later periods of their lives, and they can adjust to any situation well.
Question 4:- What are the differences between help from friends and help from family?
Answer:- Well, there is a difference in the help of friends and of family. Friends assist in personal as well as professional problems. While family also help but sometimes members of a family don’t find themselves comfortable by sharing their problems with their family members, so they find a sort of comfort and confidence in their friends because friends motivate them instead of making them about the problems.
Question 5:- Do you like helping others?
Answer:- Yes, of course, I like helping others because I am very conducive by nature, so sometimes I go out of my way to help others. I think it’s a moral obligation, and one must help others either financially or mentally.
Question 6:- Are people helpful nowadays?
Answer:- Well to some extent I can say people are helpful otherwise nowadays every person seeks their own profits. Still, there are persons who are really good by heart, and they have believed in humanity. So in my point of view, there are a few persons, who are very helpful and this thing really builds a good habit among others to help others.
Question 7:- Can people trust others easily in current times?
Answer:- Well, nowadays, people don’t trust others easily because people are money minded and they are not helpful by nature. Moreover, the other side can’t be ignored as there are many NGOs or other Charity organisations, which are working for humanity and many people also help these and by donating money and other essential things. So I can say if there are selfish people and on the other hand, there are selfless services provided by the people for the sake of humanity.
Question 8:- What do you think is the reason behind people’s not helping behaviour?
Answer:- People do have not helping behaviour because people expect something in return for their help. Moreover, people have become selfish, and they are lack social skills, so I think these are the reasons that really don’t allow them to help others.
