2. Cue card và bài mẫu thường gặp về Kindness

Describe something kind that someone did for you. You should say: 

- who this person was

- where and when it happened

- what s/he did for you

- and explain how you felt about it.

Since both of my parents are engaged in two different professions, I have to be alone at home for most of the time and during a sudden illness in the absence of my parents, one of my neighbours helped me greatly.

It was Aunt Sally who came to my help during a sudden physical illness. She is our neighbour and lives just opposite of our apartment. She is the wife of my father’s business partner and very kind in nature. Although she has two kids, she loves me like her own kid too and never makes any hesitation to share her love and affection to me. I also paid proper respect to her for her kindness to me. In the absence of my parents, she took care of me and even I stay at her apartment when my father goes abroad with her husband for business purposes and my mother goes to meet her parent.

I came back from my school early as I was feeling uncomfortable. Father dropped me at the school and said that he would take me back when the school is finished. But suddenly I started feeling uncomfortable. I was affected with a high fever and it was accompanied by a frequent cough. My muscles were filled with pain and I was feeling like that someone is beating me. Then I asked my class teacher for an emergency leave. The teacher allowed me to leave the school and also sent a school staff with me for my safety. The school staff carried me all the way to my home and handed me over to Aunt Sally as I informed that she will take my care until my parents return.

When I returned home, Aunt Sally took my responsibilities on her shoulder and took immediate actions to make me feel comfortable. She informed the issue to my parents over the telephone and asked them to return as soon as possible. She took me to her apartment, wiped my body with wet clothes and gave some painkillers and other necessary medications after consultation with a doctor. Then I slept on a bed in that apartment and when I woke up I saw my parents are sitting beside me. I would have fallen in a real trouble if Aunt Sally was not at home on that day.

I am truly grateful to her for her kindness to me. She has done a lot of things for me. She never missed one of my birthdays and even she does not forget to wish me on my birthday. I am highly lucky that I have a neighbour like her. She is a motherly figure to me and I find a sense of happiness when I meet or talk with her. When I remember that I was trembling with fever and my muscles were filled with unbearable pain, she was the only woman who came for my assistance. She cared for me like her own son and undertook all the necessary steps for my cure until the arrival of my parents. It is a blessing to me I have such a great neighbour.
