“Try to elicit as many examples of dishes and food as possible”

  • Thank you for the response!

    Well, this is taken from a language course, it is one of “Teacher’s notes” for the lesson about Food, another one being “The idea of the exercise is to recycle vocabulary that they already know”.

    Aha! So the sentence in the OP is an instruction to teachers to get the students to think of as many relevant examples as they can.

    Both that sentence and the second one you’ve provided are perfectly good English.

    To fully understand the comment about recycling vocabulary we would need more information on that particular exercise. But both messages are well written and there’s nothing unnatural about them.

    Is the problem that you don’t understand them? Or is there a particular reason why you want to express them differently?
