About The Instructor

Arlene Jullie Language Instructor


Arlene M. Jullie, M.A.
International Language Services, Inc.
Demystifying®, Inc.




In 1982, Arlene Jullie created a company based on two related personal interests: her love of teaching, and her commitment that languages cease to be a barrier between people of different cultures. Today that company, International Language Services, Inc. www.ilstranslations.com, continues to grow and evolve based on those commitments.

Born and raised in Brazil of American parents, Ms. Jullie lived and worked in Europe and the USA for several years before settling in Minneapolis. With an undergraduate degree in Spanish and French, a Master's Degree in French Literature, and credits toward a Ph.D. in Spanish and Portuguese - plus an acquired fluency in six languages - a language business was a natural choice for Arlene's career direction.

She founded International Language Services, Inc. with the goal of providing foreign language classes for the general public and, eventually, for corporate executives. By 1987, the company had moved beyond instruction, focusing its services instead on professional translation for corporations.

Arlene has continued her love of teaching, and after spending several years writing language books, her first book, Quick-Start Spanish® was published by McGraw Hill. Arlene is a founding member of the Association of Language Companies. She continues to teach Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Italian to adults through her second company, Demystifying®, Inc. (www.demystifying.com).

Ms. Jullie maintains an active role in both of her companies, International Language Services, a full-service translation company in Minneapolis, Minnesota specializing in translations for the medical and manufacturing industries, and Demystifying®, Inc, focusing on language instruction and educational materials.
