Jason Teshuba, linguapreneur and CEO of Mango Languages, has been named vice president of strategy for the National Museum of Language.
Located in College Park, Md., the mission of the National Museum of Language is to inspire an appreciation for the magic and beauty of language. This is accomplished through a range of initiatives, including visual and audio exhibits, programs and presentations that educate, inform and entertain visitors on aspects of language, languages and language cultures.
Mango Languages is a leading provider of self-guided language learning software, and Teshuba’s role with the National Museum of Language closely aligns with the company’s core purpose to enrich lives with language and culture.
“Mango Languages and the National Museum of Language share similar visions and an understanding that language is about more than words and phrases, it’s about opening people up to the diverse cultures and histories of people around the world,” said Teshuba. “As vice president of strategy for the museum, my goal, and the goal of the organization, is to create an international destination, a 3D, multi-sensory encyclopedia of language where people can learn about the beauty of language through diverse nations, geographies and foods.”
In his role as vice president of strategy, Teshuba will develop and lead the long-term strategic plan for the museum and work with its board and members to enhance the overall brand of the National Museum of Language.
“The Board of Trustees has enthusiastically endorsed Jason's vision of an evolving National Museum of Language, at the intersection of art, culture and language, with extraordinary spaces, exhibits, and events celebrating the diverse languages, peoples and histories of the world,” said John Joseph Smith, Chairman of the Board of Trustees and President of the National Museum of Language. “We look forward to working with our fellow Trustee Jason Teshuba on turning this vision into a reality.”

About National Museum of Language
The National Museum of Language (NML) opened its doors in May of 2008, sustained by a nearly all-volunteer governing board and roster of docents. Pursuant to its mission to offer the general public an appreciation for the beauty and wonder of language in its many forms, the Museum collaborates with numerous national, regional and local organizations and supporters similarly devoted to language education, appreciation and public recognition and support. These activities include permanent and rotating exhibits at the current College Park location, traveling and loan exhibits to various local and regional “high impact” venues, and a regularly scheduled speaker series featuring experts on diverse topics in language, culture, and language science.
