    "Round" means "circular in shape" Sometimes the word "around" is abbreviated as ('round) in spoken English, but that is a wholly different use of the word.

    "Around" means "approximately" or "near the area of"

    Round is a shape. example : The top of the building is round.
    Around is looking or going past something : I am going around the corner.its describing an area
