Do you want to know the various languages spoken or only a simplified official language map? Your need is not very clear.

James, thanks, but I was hoping for the language regions shapefile, e.g. in the GeoJSON form.  The list of official languages will require a lot of work to convert into the merged shapes, and it still not very good, as many countries have several official languages, e.g. Switzerland.

More like French for the entirety of the province of Quebec

Does anyone know of an open source language map - basically a set of geoshapes with the corresponding language code?  Country boundaries are not needed - e.g. Canada and USA would be English with the exception of French for Montreal area.
This is needed to guesstimate what language the "name" tag is in.
Does not have to be very precise (10-20 MB is more than enough)
