Reading is a great way to learn a new vocabulary. Try to read short stories rather than long novels. These are often broken into short chapters that can be read and analyzed for language. Do not think you have to understand every word. Try to get the general sense. Underline unfamiliar words and try to guess their meaning from context. You can use your dictionary to check later and see if you were right. Use ranked players. These issues tend to be designed to test understanding of what you just read.
Use the Internet
