I need your help!

I'd like to think my students feel they can share with me their opinions, suggestions and complaints about the way our classes develop as I do believe their views are essential for me to improve as a teacher. But I may be too optimistic 
In case you're too shy or just don't want to tell me face to face, take a minute to complete a totally anonymous survey that'll help make any necessary changes. 
Thanks a million!

Are we so different?

Men and women, and the everlasting question: Are we the same or different? Last week I was discussing with my students whether our brains are really different or it's just the result of the cultural biases imposed on us since we're born, and the thing is although at the beginning I was much more in favour of the latter, I was told that there's been a lot of scientific research on this issue which has proved that in fact, WE ARE different in several aspects.
I know stereotypes are usually unfair but, if they're not taken too seriously, commonplaces can also be fun. I hope you'll enjoy this stand-up monologue which show us how different our brains are.
First watch the video and then try to do the fill-in-the-gap activity below. I'd also like you to write a short comment giving your own point of view.
