fix how begiak's ethnologue plugin determines number of speakers

completed by: kanae

Currently, the ethnologue plugin for Begiak (our IRC bot) reports the number of speakers for some languages incorrectly. For example, it reports the number of speakers of Turkish as 350K and the number of speakers of Spanish as 7.5M (both of which are way off). In both cases, this is the number of second-language learners; instead, we should be reporting the total number of speakers in all countries. For this task, you should fork the bot on github and send a pull request when you're done.
For further information and guidance on this task, you are encouraged to come to our IRC channel.
