  2. Hi,
    Thanks for your wonderful blog. I am using it to prepare for YKI test. I would like to know which of the verb tenses I would need for the YKI test at intermediate level.

    As I have understood, there are 4 verb tenses in Finnish language.
    Apart from preesens and imperfekti, are there other tenses I should learn?

    Thanks in advance.
