Some argue that perceptual processes are not direct, but depend on the perceiver's expectations and previous knowledge as well as the information available in the stimulus itself. Attitudes may be through of opinions, beliefs, way of responding, with respect to some set of problems. They may not be formulated verbally until someone asks; they may not even be immediately available to conscious attention. They may be formed from haphazard experience, or they may be the result of deliberate thought (Gardner, 1985). Attitude is a set of personal feelings, opinions, or biases about races, cultures, ethnic group, classes of people, and languages. This paper investigated the awareness of Iranian EFL learners towards their errors. Participants of this study were a group of 50 Advanced Learners studying English at Kimya and Atiegharb language Institutes in Sanandaj, Iran. Participants were required to write a composition on a controversial topic and then determine their perception toward each of the included statements in their writing in terms of its grammatical forms. The results revealed that students think that most of their production is Certainly Correct and Correct (43.97% and 31.64% respectively) and just a few of them is Incorrect and Certainly Incorrect (2.41% and 0.96% respectively). The results of the study revealed that the Learners possess wrong perceptions toward their errors, because they think that most of their sentences are correct, it means that learners don’t know they don’t know.
