    Is it.. ?

    Is it correct to say this:

    1. People here usually speak Hokkian rather than Mandarin.

    Or using 'often' besides 'usually'?

    Is the grammar correct?

    The grammar is correct.

    Whether you use "usually" or "often" will depend on the situation.

    If the people as a general rule speak Hokkian, then "usually" is correct; if , on the other hand, they speak Mandarin as a general rule but also use Hokkian frequently, then "often" will be correct.
