Learning environment is an essential component of the learning process. Alongside text, teacher, and learner, we need to ensure the quality of the learning environment as well for active learning. The present research focused on creating a quality learning environment for English language learners at university level in Saudi Arabia. A questionnaire was designed to assess the students’ perception regarding quality learning environment. The questionnaire was administered to the first year university students. The sample consisted of 100 male and 100 female students. The questionnaire consisted of five sections: course content and organization, student contribution, learning environment and teaching methods, learning resources, quality of delivery, and assessment. Using lickert scale, the data were analyzed and it was found that despite of having excellent content and teaching methodology, learning environment is greatly affected by the physical settings, pacing of the course content, interaction, timely feedback by the teacher, etc.
