vor

1.
in front of, forward
(for locations. Two-Way preposition so for a destination it's Accusative and for a fixed location it is Dative)
2.
before
(ONLY as a preposition, so if it is followed up with a point in time. The other translations are "bevor" and "vorher" or "davor")
3.
ago
(IMPORTANT: "vor" comes BEFORE the time, not after it. IT translates the message of "ago", but it's not the same, functionally speaking. )
