Other questions about "Topic"

Q: When you want to change the topic in a conversation,what should I say?
A: Well in a natural conversation you don't really need to announce that you want to change the topic you just find a way to work the topic in to the conversation like normal. However if you want to know how to say it, it's "Can we change the topic?" or "Can we switch topics?" but like i said it's not something that comes up in regular conversation. Normally you would just wait the the other person stops and then introduce the other topic maybe for example you were having a conversation about about school or your job and you wanted to start talking about what you did last night you would just introduce by saying something like this when the other person pauses, "You know last night I....." or " Did i tell you what i did last night....", "Oh by the way last night....." Keep in mind it's a normal conversation not school work.
