yes, if you look at the majority language in a whole country this is typically easy to answer, and can be looked up in a list / wikidata, no need to map it, or if you did you would probably finish soon.

What would be much more interesting are minority languages, spoken (as first language) by a (locally) significant part of the population, regardless of them being official or not.

Cheers,
