The simplest rule of increasing vocabulary level is:
1. Learn some new words everyday.

As a child at school often I didn't like reading and writing English, but had to do it repetitively like a parrot. My handwriting was far from decent. Hence I used to write and re-write ( Rough class work to Neat class work).
Somewhere in the middle of 10-12 th standarad one of our English teacher used to say that the best way to learn a language is first to speak, then read and then write ( basic common core words and phrases to bigger sentence)

1. start reading English newspapers, articles, ( I find editorials and invited articles are of a high standard of creative writing and vocabulary) and novels ( i love legal/ thriller novels and have learn't a lot - John Grisham, Jeffery Archer)
2.have conversations in English and you will see that many new words and phrases are used that can easily be picked up
3. Start writing on a topic that you are familiar with and do 3-4 drafts trying to improve, concise and make it more interesting to read. I'm sure you'll find a great difference after 2-3 weeks.
4. Listen to English news and documentaries (nature documentaries by David Attenborough) where in the narrator often has an excellent command of English and vocabulary.
5. Watching good English movies ( Court room dramas) with subtitles has helped me
Hope this helps you.. Simply good writing is nothing but a good expression of your thoughts and view in black and white..
