English is not my native language. I know we should have good English knowledge to acquire good jobs these days. Improving grammar is not only help to grow our knowledge. But also we should have wide vocabulary. I need to improve my word level more and more. Can anyone please suggest me how to do that quickly?

It is probably impossible to do that quickly. I suggest reading lots of English literature and other sorts of document. But make sure it is modern; learning Shakespearean vocabulary will make you sound strange.

And if you can get hold of audio books, that will also help. English is famous for its inconsistency in pronunciation.

Thanks Campbell and Stuart for the suggestions.
Is there any legitimate audio books freely available to refer?
