Belajar Bahasa Inggris : Perbedaan increase dan improve

Increase means to add to, to make more of. To increase in size would be the same as 'agrandir'. 

Improve means to make better. 

For example: You can increase the amount of buttons sewn onto a shirt, however it will not necessarily improve the overall look of the sweater.

Edited to add: I just saw your context sentence there. In your case, it is a bit unclear as to which word to use, however the way you have it seems perfect to me. We usually say you 'increase understanding', not 'improve understanding', at least here in Canada. However, here's the catch... we do say 'have a better understanding', (ex: Now I have a better understanding of the roles these factors play.).
