Ragazzi, mi serve un aiuto entro sabato, se gentilmente potete verificare se ho risposto bene alle domande dei due testi di comprensione che invio di seguito compreso le domande a cui ho risposto.

1 Testo:

Do women come from Venus and men from Mars?

How men and women speak differently

It's long been said that men are from Mars and women are from Venus, and where use of the English language is concerned there are some very notable differences.
Indeed, in some cases even people that have been in a long-term relationship find it difficult to understand each other.
The problem seems to be that some men speak "Menlish" rather than English, and women are left to merely scratch their collective heads.
If you've never heard of it, Menlish is a language that only men use and understand. It is largely based on English but involves unusual terms, significant volume and, in some cases, an almost inaudible mumble.
Terms that seem quite clear can also be interpreted quite differently.
For example, when a woman points out that her man has become a bit of slob and that it would be appreciated if he helped out around the house a little, what the man hears goes something like: "nag, nag, nag, nag, nag, nag, nag, naaaaaagggggggg".
When a man says he doesn't care what colour scheme a woman chooses to decorate the living room, what he really means is "it can be any colour as long as it’s the same colour as my favourite football team".
If a man says he doesn't like to go shopping, what he really means is that he doesn't like shopping if it isn't solely for himself and does not include stopping off at a pub somewhere for a few beers.
This said, those of the fairer sex are not always the easiest to understand either.
In fact, most men have come to realise that when a woman says one thing what she actually means is the opposite.
For example, when she says "that's fine," she means "that's not on".
If she says she's not angry about something it means she is furious, and if she says "wow" she certainly isn't impressed, she's actually thinking "what an idiot".
"Flatulence"
Men – good harmless fun that is very amusing in public.
Women – disgusting regardless of a person's location.
"Television remote control"
Men – a device that allows me to flick through hundreds of channels, one after the other.
Women – something I never see except when I have to pull it out of the back of the sofa.
"I'll be ready in ten minutes"
Men – I will actually be ready in ten minutes or less
Women – Give me an hour at least.

English language examinations

There are many different English language examinations.
Children attending schools in the United Kingdom study for a General Certificate of Education (GCSE) in English Language.
This is compulsory for all children.
The examination is usually taken when they reach 16 years old.
Most employers in the UK require job seekers to have this qualification.
It is also essential if you are planning to attend a college or university.
Students can then choose to study for an Advanced level qualification in English Language.
This takes two years.
Many non-native English language students study for qualifications awarded by the International English Language Testing System.
There are two versions of the tests.
The Academic version is aimed at people who wish to go to a University, or work as a nurse or doctor in an English speaking country.
The General version is aimed at people who want to gain work experience or attend non-academic training, or who plan to emigrate to an English speaking country.
This qualification is accepted by most Australian, British, Canadian, Irish, New Zealand, South African and American institutions.
It is an essential requirement for anyone planning to emigrate to Australia and New Zealand.
Many students take the Cambridge IELTS assessed by Cambridge University.
The TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) measures English Language skills to see if people are capable of taking a course at a university in an English Speaking country.
It assesses how well they can read, write, speak and perform academic tasks in English.
It is accepted by over 7,000 colleges and universities worldwide.
