Adjectives and substantives

1) It's difficult for a young teacher to have a whole class of fifteen-year-olds, because at that age, young people are quite restless ...

2) A counsel for the defence must protect and defend the unjustly accused as well as the suspects he knows are guilty ... 

3) As sincere environmentalists, the Greens fight for the protection of our childrens' futures ....

4) We must respect the ideas of the Greens if we want to keep our planet from being destroyed by mankind. 

5) I don't like the theatre of the Absurd at all! In fact, I'm just back from 'The Caretaker' by Pinter and I hated it! ...

6) Recently, in 2010, the unthinkable happened in Haïti : An earthquake destroyed a vast majority of the island.

Thousands of volunteers from various NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations) searched the rubble for the living they could save,

but also for the dead, in order to give the bodies back to their mourning families.

They took care of the sick and

the totally deprived, helped and comforted them. They built refugee 'villages'

where the homeless could be sheltered 'momentarily'.

After preventing the death of the innocent some of these NGOs remained in the country to help to clean and rebuild a small part of the country.

Among Haïtians, the extremely poor are still in countless numbers. But solidarity is still playing its part :

The whites, mostly tourists, could be sent back to their countries and

the blacks, the natives, are slowly and courageously regaining hope. The developed countries mustn't forget Haïtians or let them down ....
