This study investigated students’ beliefs and preferences regarding written corrective feedback (WCF) in an EFL environment. More specifically, it examined Saudi students’ perceptions of the utility and effect of WCF in enhancing their language skills at KAU. The study used a mixed-method research paradigm: a qualitative part, where data were collected from semi-structured interviews, and a quantitative part, which involved a closed-ended questionnaire to investigate participants’ beliefs regarding WCF and how it is used in EFL writing classes. The results can assist language teachers and curriculum designers in adapting feedback systems suitable to students’ expectations and learning styles. Finally, the study aims to bridge the gap between the current instructional approaches and student preferences.
