“Tu leur rendais souvent visite” - why split rendre visite?

Hi Jo,

Simply to modify the verb rendre with the adverb souvent   to express "frequently / often" rather than just "visit"

So it is the difference between "paying a visit" and "paying a visit frequently / often"

Hope this helps.

Yes, the default position of an adverb is right after the first conjugated verb.
