"Do you take a walk often?" does not sound right in English. What sounds more natural is "Do you take walks often?" or even "Do you often take walks." ... yet, it's wrong if you enter that. Sigh

I agree, my answer to this translation was "Do you often take walks?" I am going to report it, though that doesn't seem to do much, most of the time. -_-

Why not "frequently"? I'm not native. Is there any difference between frequently and often?

Though “often” and “frequently” are synonyms, “frequently” implies more of a compulsiveness than “often.” Say, “I often check the mail,” as one should, because you never know when something important could arrive. But, to say “I frequently check the mail” implies that you are anticipating something. Frequency involves a pattern or compulsion, while “often,” rather, is more casual, though still repetitive.
