    go picnic/ go on a picnic.

    I check the key of the test and there is a phrase "go picnic".
    I've checked in dictionary and found on the web but I only found "go on a picnic or go for a picnic'.
    Is it correct to say: Go picnic?

    Re: go picnic/ go on a picnic.

    It may be possible but it's not nearly as natural as "go on a picnic."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: go picnic/ go on a picnic.

    If it's in a test, can "go picnic" be accepted as a correct answer?

    You would have to ask your teacher.
