Short advice, if you don't mind:
First off, 47 with beginners' is cool!!
You could use x R' U R' D2 R U' R' D2 R2 x' instead of R' F R' B2 R F' R' B2 R2
Also, for the edges, you can do R U' R U R U R U' R' U' R2 instead of F2 U' L R' F2 L' R U' F2
rest of the solve looks good.

I like helping beginners.

What about the alternate version where the needed edge is on the right? Also the reason why i got 47 was because that cross skip lol.
