    Hello Quadri85, and welcome to the forum.
    It's certainly possible to start a sentence with "should."
    What sentence(s) did you have in mind?

    Should you desire to start a sentence with should, this sentence is a rather formal example of one way to do so.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: How to use the word should

    Note that your title was grammatically incorrect. We don't start questions with "How to" (and your title was clearly intended to be a question despite the lack of question mark.)

    It should have been "How do we/How should I use the word "should"?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
