"The girl runs around the apartment."
Translation:A menina corre pelo apartamento.
Em vota de or em turno de, though I ussually assoiate em turno de when describing a shft (veio or eixo) when describing moving around an object. em volta de as you explained outside Like em volta de cidade around the city. but this pelo. is not making sense to my english biased brain, For me I translate that as for the , by the from the. is pelo also meaning around the as well?
Yes, "em volta de" and "em torno de" mean the same thing, but the latter is rarely used.
"Pelo" is used to mean "through" or "across from" something. If you say "a garota corre pelo apartamento", it means she goes to many parts of its area ("around", in English).
Vamos dar uma volta pela cidade?
It means they will go to many areas of the city for visiting or sightseeing.
Vamos dar uma volta em torno da cidade?
It means they will go around/surround the city.
Eles estão em volta da fogueira.
It means they are around (the external area [luckily!]) the bonfire.
But "pelo" may have other meanings as well, and that's why you might be confused!
