The aim of this article is to examine the impact of feedback on content and organization in writing tasks developed by learners of English as a foreign language. The type of study is qualitative and the research design is a case study. One study involved three students and a female teacher, and the second consisted of three students and a male teacher. Research instruments involved were a structured interview, a writing task in class and document analysis. The findings show that students feel motivated to re-write a writing task when the teacher provides feedback on content and organization. Moreover, there was evidence of improvement in the students' writing when they incorporated the teacher's comments.
