First Two Layers, or F2L are normally the first two bottom layers of the 3x3x3 cube, or essentially all layers up until the last layer on larger
cubes.
The definition is a little different depending on the subject or who you are talking to. Normally it is as above but it may also refer to the part of
the Fridrich method that solves the pairs without counting the cross part.
2-gen F2L, most pairs (30:42) have the edge sitting in the U-layer having two orientations, it shows R or F colour at the side. If it is the R colour
you can solve the pair using only RU and if it is the F colour you can turn the cube (y') and sovle the pair to the back slot using only RU. The only
pairs that needs both R and F turns are the six ones with the edge unoriented in the slot, if the edge is oriented in the slot both ways works.

Approaches
Petrus F2L
Another way to solve the 'F2L' is by building blocks, common during the first two layers of the Petrus method.
Fridrich F2L
There are many ways to solve the 'F2L' on a cube. A common system is using the Fridrich method first two layer approach. After solving the
cross, a corner-edge pair is paired up, and then inserted into the correct slot. A total of four corner edge (or 'CE') pairs are made and inserted to
solve the first two layers.
The concept of pairing up four corner/edge pairs was first proposed by Ren Schoof in 1981.
