This was likely debated by the Puritans who also tried to investigate how many angels could stand on the head of a pin.
Because the Lord spoke from heaven in the Hebrew tongue to Saul (Acts 26:14), some have concluded that Hebrew is the language of heaven. However, in the days of His flesh, the Lord communicated in Aramaic (Matthew 27:46). The Spirit communicated with John and the seven churches in Greek. God communicates in the language people understand.
Just as all the earth had one language originally (Genesis 11:1), so the Lord confounded (mixed) the language of all the earth (v 9). That seems to clearly state that all extant languages are a result of this intervention of God. Therefore, the "original" language does not exist.
If this is so, God has not revealed the answer to this question.
