When your FIL declares NO ENGLISH, he's defacto insulting you by cutting you off. He knows you can't talk, can't communicate, and if your husband allows that--well it should be a problem, IMO. I realize there are differences in culture, but mutual respect and decency towards others DOES translate!
Insist that if you are expected to just sit quietly every time your FIL gets tired of hearing English being spoken, then you are entitled to some REAL Chinese lessons with professional teachers.
