Knowing chinese will help you out a lot in getting on their good side. so ask ur gf to start teaching you, be outrageously respectful to her parents by saying "hi, how are you?" all the time and shaking the father's hand whenever you get the chance. If you ever go to a family gathering, bring something as a present or something, be it some fruit, cake, dessert, etc. and try not to hold ur gf anywhere other than her hands while in their presence.
with the not really being able to converse with her parents, I know wat you mean...i speak cantonese and my gf's parents speak toi san so it's hard to converse with them also. tho they understand what i say...but when they talk...i'm like "huh??" anyhow actions speak much louder than words to parents.
My gf listens to her parents (for the most part) as well. It's normal.
Good luck with it all.
