You need to use two quotes around English because it is inside a string. Something like this:

declare @filename varchar(100)
declare @cmd varchar (1000)
set @filename='C:\testsqloutput.txt'
Set @cmd = 'osql -h -E -d healthdistrictQnA /Q "SELECT  lastname, firstname,case when bytlanguage = 2 then ''English''  when bytlanguage = 3 THEN ''Spanish' 'when bytlanguage = 1 THEN ''English''              
                        when bytlanguage = 4 THEN ''English''  end as ''Language'', appt.phone, CONVERT(VARCHAR,APPTDATE, 101) as apptdate, time_hour, time_minute,apptreason,  name_last, name_first,appt.prprovid  FROM DDB_APPT_BASE as appt inner join ddb_pat_base as pat on appt.patid = pat.patid inner join ddb_rsc_base as rsc on appt.prprovid = rsc.urscid inner join tblpatient as p on appt.chart = p.strpatientid
WHERE CONVERT(VARCHAR,APPTDATE, 101) = CONVERT(VARCHAR,DateAdd(dd,
   CASE WHEN DATEPART(weekday, getdate()) IN ( 5,6) THEN  4 ELSE 2 END
  , GetDate()), 101) and rsc.defaultclinic = 30
ORDER BY APPTDATE DESC"  /o ' + @filename
exec master.dbo.xp_cmdshell @cmd

Make sure you have two quotes where there should be one (inside the string) ... look at Spanish...
