Here is my best explanation:

'pick' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'the spanish italian and english' is the wordplay.
'the spanish' becomes 'el' (**).
'italian' becomes 'it'.
'and' says to put letters next to each other.
'english' becomes 'e' (abbreviation).
'el'+'it'+'e'='ELITE'

'of' is the link.
