    which one?

    Hi there,

    Any difference between ‘in’ and ‘around’ in the following sentence?
    Students can display their finished posters (in OR around) the classroom.
    Thanks

    Hi,
    There is a subtle difference, "in the classroom" doesn't specify where, in the classroom, the posters can be displayed.
    "Around the classroom", while not specific, implies that the posters can be diplayed "around (the walls) of the classroom".
