【一】fun
fun (非正式用法可以當adj.),指有趣的或愉快的,某事物令人覺得很好玩或享受的意思。
<例句>

[補充1]
通常 fun 是當名詞(n.)用,可指娛樂、樂趣[1]或幽默[2],也可指有趣的事物或人[3]。
<例句>
[1] The children were having fun in the play area.
[2] She's full of fun.
[3] The column's just a bit of fun. 

[補充2]
fun 口語時也可以當動詞(v.)用,三態變化 funs, funning, funned,指開玩笑或說笑,用法分及物[1]和不及物[2]動詞兩種。
<例句>
[1] They are just funning you.
[2] I was only funning.

【二】funny

funny (adj.) 可解釋成有趣的,但是帶有點滑稽可笑[1],另外也有古怪的、難以解釋的意思[2]。特別注意在口語時可以用來強調某事物令人不愉快或是不對的,存在著認真嚴肅的意味,表示不是在開玩笑[3]。
<例句>
[1] The play is hilariously funny.
[2] I had a funny feeling you'd be around.
[3] Stealing other people’s work isn't funny.

[補充3] 非正式用法可以當名詞(n.),以複數(pl.)表示,代表笑話或報章雜誌上的連環漫畫[4]。
<例句>
I read the sports page, funnies, and editorial.

【三】interesting
interesting (adj.) 是指某人事物引發出好奇或興趣,也有令人關注的意思。
<例句>
It will be very interesting to see what they come up with.
It is an interesting book for children.
We had a long and interesting talk.

 [補充4]
說到 interesting,就要順便介紹 interested (adj.),這是指人感到有興趣或關心的意思[1],相關片語有 be + interested + in ...。但也可以解釋成有利害關係的[2]、有私心的[3]。
<例句>
[1] I had always been interested in history.
[2] He is an interested party and can not serve on the jury.
[3] An interested person can not make a fair decision.
