Find a Conversation

My boyfriend and I were together 2 years before we decided to have our now 9 month old son. I was a round his family a little bit, but not a whole lot and they always spoke English in front of me. Now most of the time they speak Assyrian and no one bothers to translate anything. The very little bit I know I can't even make out in a sentence because they speak so fast. Even after asking them to translate and asking them to slow down, they don't even try to teach me and help me learn. This isn't a language I can learn from on-line or from books, so I need to rely on them. When ever we're together i am excluded from 99% of the conversations and I feel so out of place. Now they are teaching my son. My hubby says I'm being racist by not wanting him to learn, but I feel as if that's one more way for me to be excluded from the family. Now my son will be included in this! What do I do?
