Hi,
I want to give a written command, "Start your sentences with a time expression". Can I use "commencer" here? It sounds funny to me.

Commencez les phrases avec une expression de temps

Is that correct? Thanks for your help!

    C'est correct pourtant. Mais je dirais plutôt:
    Faites des phrases commençant par une expression de temps.

    I want to say "I am going to start a sentence, and you (the students) are going to finish it" Would commencer be the best choice here? Démarrer and lancer are shown in the main entry, but I am not sure they are used in the same context as I want to say.
    Je vais (commencer?) une phrase, et vous allez la compléter sur vos papiers.

    Merci
