IELTS: Helping in everyday life, Helping in the Workplace


IELTS Part 3 Questions - Helping


Helping in Everyday Life


In general, who do you think gives more help in a family (or marriage), the husband or the wife?

It depends, there are different kinds of help and every family is different also. I suppose that maybe a wife might help more with children, especially daughters, but a father may help more with sons in terms of teaching them certain skills and things like that.

Then there is financial help, it may be a case of helping aging parents or other family members and this would depend on whether or not both the husband and wife are working or only one of them.

You could say that in the case where a mom stays at home to look after the home and children and the husband goes to work and provides financially for all the family that she is helping him, but then he is also helping them, financially, so I guess in an ideal family everybody helps each other even the children can help by doing things to make life easier or helping their parents with chores around the home.




Helping in the Workplace

How can (or does) an employee help his or her employer?

Well, normally an employee is contracted to do a certain task, fulfill a certain function or take responsibility for something.

This allows the employer to meet their business goals through providing products or services and generating sales and profit.

But again, it’s a case of… without the employees the employer couldn’t achieve what he or she wants to, but without the employer the employees wouldn’t have a job and therefore probably couldn’t do many things they would like.

So in reality they both help each other – it’s a mutually helpful relationship.

How can (or does) an employer help his or her employees?

Firstly, an employer provides regular income for an employee, a degree of stability and meets certain social needs of the employee. An employee might feel particularly happy in their job, proud of the work they do, and it might also allow them to provide things for their family that otherwise they wouldn’t be able to.

Having a job where there is potential or opportunity to grow and develop as a person can also be helpful for the employee. It boosts their self esteem and makes them more content and satisfied.

Do you think an employer helping an employee can motivate that employee to work better (or work harder/ work more)?

Yes, if the employee is interested in improving themselves, developing better skills or learning new ones. If an employer helps an employee when the employee is having difficulty, the employee might feel more loyal to the employer’s business and want to work harder.

If the employer helps the employee by offering better work opportunities or more responsibility, for example, the employee may also develop a stronger feeling of loyalty and develop more pride in their work and their position within the organization and work harder or better to protect it and help the business grow even more.

How can (or do) colleagues help each other at work?

There are many ways; they can collaborate on projects or individual tasks by discussing ides, problems or simply sharing the workload. They can offer support and advice when required, especially if a person is having a difficult time, for whatever reason.

Covering for a colleague if they are unwell or absent is a common favor done by many people, and also helping colleagues learn things they need to in order to do their jobs better.
