For questions showing interest, the intonation usually goes up. For exclamations showing interest, the intonation usually goes down. Besides these, what else can we use to show interest? (Unit one) Body language？eye contact, gestures, facial expression…
When the topic of the conversation does not interest you, you can change the subject by using expressions such as “By the way…”
