Lambert wants his new signings to learn English, but not before they steep themselves in the football philosophies of his young squad.
"Learning English is important for them," said Lambert. "Some have better English than others but I think it is important, first and foremost, that they learn the language on the football side.
"By that, I mean the terminology on a football pitch. I think they've got to learn that.
"If they do that and they start to converse with people, it will bring their game on quicker.
"It is a strange environment for all of the new guys. But they will hit the ground running and once they start to know each other's names and integrate with each other then they will not have a problem."
Lambert believes his new signings, including Jores Okore, Niklas Helenius and Leandro Bacuna, will all play major roles next season.
"Every one of them has got the same objective - they want to do well here," he said.
"They are certainly young enough lads to kick on with their careers too. I think that is the beauty of it all.
"They are a young group coming in, allied to the ones that are already here. Those lads will be better for what happened last year.
"If they do that all together then hopefully they will be strong."
