This study aimed at finding the correlation between Iranian and Turkish EFL learnersâ€™ cognitive styles and their preferences for different WCF types. Sixty out of seventy-five EFL students at the intermediate level in two contexts (Iran and Turkey) were selected through the Oxford Placement Test. There were two instruments in this research: The Learning Styles Questionnaire, and CF questionnaire. The researcher gave detailed instructions on how to complete the surveys. The findings demonstrated that there was a correlation between EFL studentsâ€™ cognitive styles and their WCF preferences in both Iran and Turkey contexts. The second research question results indicated that there was a relationship between learnersâ€™ cognitive styles and their preferences for different types of errors to be corrected. The results of the third research question showed that the correlation between Iranian studentsâ€™ cognitive styles and their preferences for different CF frequencies was not significant. The last research question results showed that the correlation between Turkish studentsâ€™ cognitive styles and their preferences for different CF frequencies was not significant.
