    Default Get across vs get something across

    Wouldn't it be a good idea to differenciate between those passive and active, (or transitive and intransitive) verbs, as there is quite a difference? e.g. get across the river and get the idea across. This is especially important for foreign students who find phrasal verbs a nightmare at the best of times.

    If you click on a verb, it'll give more information such as whether it's intransitive,. separable, etc.
