    Default require

    I donīt know how to use "require" well. Hod do I straighten out this sentence:

    - Some companies require from their secretaries that they must have at least graduated from high school.

    There are several ways to say that.

    Try:

    • Some companies require that their secretaries have a high school diploma.


    Or:

    • Some companies require that their secretaries have graduated from high school.


    It is not usual to say require from, but you can use it like this: "I will require ten dollars from you before you can take it home."

    :)
