Hello teachers

If there are two people discussing some topic, I want to attend their discussion. I would like to say:

1. I'm a little interested about this discussion between you.

2. I'm a little interested about this discussion of you two.

3. I'm a little interested about this discussion of two of you.

4. I'm a little interested about two of you of this discussion.

5. I'm a little interested about you two’s discussion.

Which are correct? And which are the more natural ways?

Any others ways. Please tell me.

Thanks a lot.

If there are two people discussing some topic, and I want to join their discussion, I would like to say...

Which are correct?-- None, really

And which are the more natural ways?-- Your discussion sounds interesting. That sounds interesting. What you two are talking about sounds interesting.
Hi,
I suggest these versions.

I'm interested in your discussion. Can I join you?

Casual -

I'm interested in you two's discussion. Can I join in?

you two's discussion???? Emotion: surprise I guess I could imagine saying this, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it to anyone! I'd say it's a step or two below casual.

"I'm interested in your discussion" is fine. If for some reason you feel it's really necessary to point out that there are two people having the discussion, you could say "I'm interested in what you two are discussing."
Hi Khoff,
you two's discussion???? Part of what I say occasionally. Emotion: smile

I seem to remember getting the same reaction a while back when I mentioned I occasionally say eg Mary and I's car.

It must be my Northern Irish idiolect showing through. Emotion: stick out tongue

Clive.
Yep, I would react the same way to "Mary and I's car."

Well, we all have our idiosyncracies! (Personally, I like "a whole nother such-and-such.")
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
@Khoff .. You are correct! ...made me laugh out loud...with your smart comment. Lol

My version:

It depends on context.
Eg if you are listening to chat happening infront of you then:-

A) may not be appropriate to even ask..because it means you are eaves dropping! Lol

Or could try
B)
"Excuse me, sorry to interrupt, but what you both/two are discussing sounds interesting."

( you might be able to join in chat or told to go, depending on the two people!)

I'd prefer using " both".

If it's some discussion yet to be held, then:

"The discussion between you two sounds interesting, may I come along please?"

Remember conversations are never just one way, so adjust words and behaviour accordingly...always adhere to etiquette.

:-)
