    Typically, we 'put across' an idea. We can say, 'the author has difficulty putting across his ideas', or 'he explained hs position and put across his ideas very well'.

    'Put across', really means to explain or to transfer an idea from one person to another.

    Attention: I'm not a teacher.

    Hi Claudio,

    There is further explanation of the expression “put across” as a phrasal verb and an idiom.

    put across = a) cause to be understood or accepted, as in
    She put her views across very well.

    b) attain or carry through by deceit, as in
    You can't put anything across this teacher.

    put across = put over

    put over - make something or someone be understood or accepted, as in
    The public relations staff helped put our candidate over to the public.
    put over on - fool, deceive, as in
    We can't put anything over on Tom.

    put across - transmit information, communicate, convey a message
    put across - in such a manner as to be comprehensible, acceptable, or successful: put our idea across; get a message across.

    Regards.

    V.
