having english as a second languare doesn't really bother me in everyday life, but it's a bit hard to udnerstand all the shit they say in films. the last film i've seen was mean girls, which i think is quite a good film, but with some shits in it. any of you here that are american are more than welcome to translate me what the following figures of speech mean:

freshmen
ROTC guys
preps
JV jocks
varsity jocks
burnouts

those are the names of different cliques at the school and so far they make no friggin sense to me. more to come ;)

freshmen - People in the 9th grade

ROTC guys - Bunch of dorky kids that dress up as Army Men, but really aren't in the Army.

preps - Pretty people, usually wealthy through their parents.

JV jocks - The 10th graders, and 11th graders that play sports.

varsity jocks - The 12th Graders that play sports.

burnouts - People that do drugs.

Freshmen - yea people in the 9th grade that everyone picks on because they just hit puberty and dont know what to do.

ROTC - Stands for reserve officer training core (i think) Its for people who want to join the army and if you join it you will get a higher rank in the army when you join it.

Preps - yea snobby stuck up people that think they are better then everyone else cuz they have money or are pretty or something stupid

JV Jocks - stands for Juinor Varcity Jocks. Basically the football studs that date the cheerleaders. Nothin big there.

Varcity jocks - Just a higher form of a jv jock

Burnout - When you take your car and spin the back tires so it kicks dirt at everyone standing behind you. or just leaves tire marks on the pavement.

Hope this helps.
