Avant de

I see in the lesson example you say avant que je n aille chez Paula. Would it be better to say avant d aller chez Paula 

This relates to:
Avant que + ne explétif + Le Subjonctif = Before I do -

Both are possible. Using "avant de" it isn't clear what the subject is, while "avant que" does mention the subject and is more explicit.

But, of course, with "avant de" the subject would be me tioned in the main clause.
