The corrective feedback sometimes fails to receive the proper response from learners even though they are designed for realising the anticipated outcome. The experience of the researcher made her realize the inadequacy of her teaching even the same set of learners consecutively for two semesters for making the desired changes in the writing skill and their knowledge of language. The assumption was that the corrective mechanism might be one of the reasons for the lack of much improvement in their writing skill. The researcher decided to conduct the action research in the class to be informed of their preference and perspective in the corrective feedback mechanism. The results of the survey conducted made clear the preference of learners in the type of corrective feedback in relation to the occasion, medium, position of learners and strategy. The research has led to the conclusion that it is necessary to be aware of the inclination of learners towards different types of feedback mechanism to be beneficial for them. © Research India Publications.
