In their first year FAE instructors are required to teach three sections of English 101 in the fall term and three sections of English 102 in the spring. English 101 and 102 require students to read and analyze academic texts, plan and compose academic essays, engage in independent research projects, plan and deliver oral presentations, and develop their language and academic skills proficiency as learners of a foreign language.

Some instructors may be asked to teach these classes in lieu of English 101 and 102.
