    It's good. You will here "queue" and "timetable" in AmE, but they are not as common.

    You'll hear garbage and trash in BrE -they aren't as common either - but it's basically fine.

    The list looks good. In AmE "wardrobe" typically means a collection of clothes rather than a closet.

    It's generally correct. In addition to what others have said, we use "Autumn" in AmE, but "Fall" is more common.
