☆   requirement  必需品


“Requirement” can be used in two ways. Firstly, a requirement is a thing that you need. For example, food labels often show what percent of our daily food requirement that the food provides. Or a program might be able to be “arranged to suit your requirements.”

The other way to use this word is to refer to a quality or a qualification you must have in order to be allowed to do something. For example, a driver’s license is a legal requirement to be able to drive. Or in Australia, in order to become a teacher, the minimum requirement is a graduate degree in education.

How about in your life or job? Are there any requirements (such as Internet access, a computer) that you need to be able to do your job? Or are there any requirements (such as a university qualification) that you needed in order to get the job you have now?
