around and about
could you please tell me the defference bettween
around and about when we are talking about time
like when i say for example the ship will arrive around/about
the 25th of april
In this case, either around or about means approximately. The ship might arrive on the 25th, but it also might arrive on the 24th or the 26th.
Re: around and about
There is no difference there. Both mean "approximately".

I've heard "I'll see you around" but not "I'll see you around and about". Might that be BE?
