English: Within the South African context; e-learning provides various opportunities to contribute towards a multilingual society. This paper describes a new project; ICALLESAL (Intelligent Computer-Assisted Language Learning for Eleven South African Languages); where an e-learning system is being developed for the acquisition of the official South African languages. The paper commences by defining computer-assisted language learning (CALL) and intelligent computer-assisted language learning (ICALL) within the context of e-learning. The benefits of CALL within the South African context are discussed; with specific focus on how it could promote a culture of multilingualism; and also help towards bridging the Digital Divide in South Africa. In the subsequent section; the ICALLESAL system is discussed in more detail by presenting various technologies; content objects; and features of the system.
