This study aims at analyzing the impact of an Oral-Corrective-Feedback (OCF) training program on English as a Foreign Language teachers’ attitudes towards oral corrective feedback. In order to achieve this objective, the research design was quasi-experimental and analyzed data with a mixed-methods approach. The study gathered data from seventeen participants, nine in the experimental group and eight in the control group. Participants were administered a pretest and a posttest to determine if the intervention caused a change in the cognitive component of participants’ attitudes. Reflection journals were provided by the participants in the experimental group to analyze data from the progressive change, if any. The findings demonstrate that there was an actual change in participants’ cognitive component, which also led to a change in the other components of the attitude as expected. An OCF training course with content of attitude awareness is likely to positively change teachers’ attitudes towards OCF in order for them to provide effective OCF.
