How to use 'uninterested' and 'disinterested' correctly

In this post, I will show how to use ‘uninterested’ and ‘disinterested’ in sentences. First, we need to know the meanings of these words. The meaning of ‘uninterested’ is ‘not interested’ whereas ‘disinterested’ means ‘impartial, fair or neutral’

Let’s look at their usage in the following sentences.

1 It is no point asking John who is uninterested in our project to join us.

2 She seemed bored at the meeting because she was uninterested in what was being discussed.

3 A disinterested teacher is asked to act as the judge of the contest because she does not know any of the contestants.
