Superimposable - Non Superimposable

I need help for my university homework, I can grasp the concept now but I need a little bit of confirmation!

So from what I understand is Enantiomers are a mirror image of each other and are chiral compund, when rotating the mirror image 180 degrees it became non-superimposed
While Meso compounds are also a mirror image and has inner plane of symmetry, an achiral coumpound. When rotating the mirror image 180 degress it is still superimposed

Did I understanded right? My lectures are in my native language, which I couldn’t understand much because I am trilingual. So I just study on my own with English lectures on youtube, really sorry if my English is wrong. Thank you!
