Japanese translation check

My Japanese course has been vocabulary intensive but covered almost nothing by way of grammar. I'm in the midst of teaching myself grammar to fill in the gaps, but there's often no way to tell if I'm right or not.

I tried writing the sentence '125,000,000 people speak Japanese fluently' (I used 'fluently' rather than 'as their L1') and got

125、000,000人わ日本語がしたがまわるはなす.

Is that correct? 

Thanks in advance.
