    I would like to say:to expand/improve/widen my vocabulary. What would be the most appropriate word out of this list and how would I say this? Thanks!

    I would probably use améliorer for this, purely because it's the only way I know how to say it. It makes sense, so say it in whatever way you can

    approfondir?

    no, perhaps not. my french teacher told us it sounded good with 'connaissance' though.
