    Default prior to

    Dear teachers,

    I'm struggling with the use of "prior to". Let me show you an example:

    (action)

    I would like to hold the meeting before he comes to Luxembourg
    I would like to hold the meeting prior to his coming to Luxembourg

    (date)

    I would like to hold the meeting before March 31st, 2012
    I would like to hold the meeting prior to March 31st, 2012

    Are all these sentences gramatically correct?

    Thank you very much

    Guillaume
