Como se usan en inglés las preposiciones «across, through and over»

Across, through, over

Over the river and through the woods… goes a famous old American folk song.  Keep in mind that we use ‘across’ to talk about movement or connection between something with two sides. ‘Through’ is similar, but this movement or connection takes place inside something. ‘Over’ speaks about movement or position at a higher level when compared to a reference point.

She hit the ball over the fence. – Ella dio a la pelota y se fue al otro lado de la valla.
