Abstract: Peer review, as a potentially beneficial pedagogical practice, has been gaining popularity in university writing classes for EFL/ESL students. A recent survey on the writing feedback preferences of undergraduate EFL learners at a major university in China, however, reveals a potential problem with the adoption of this pedagogical practice in EFL/ESL writing classrooms, namely the possible existence of an affective disadvantage of peer feedback for Chinese students and other learners from similar cultural backgrounds. Prompted by survey data and drawing on existing research, this article looks into this issue by analysing its underlying factors and suggesting productive ways to address these factors in the classroom.
