Recommendation for fluent Chinese speaker to learn how to read and write Chinese

I can speak and understand Chinese proficiently, however i could still improve my vocabulary (goal is to do business in China) But what is your plan for someone like me who first wants to learn the basics of reading and writing?

Thanks :)

Hi Mike,

I'm not a native speaker of Chinese, and I'm certainly not proficient, but I've found that learning to recognise the components that make up each character has helped me to to the reading tasks on Duolingo much easier.

I think one of the drawbacks of learning to /read/ Chinese through Duolingo is that the order in which you learn to read characters isn't the order that a native speaker would learn them.

Having said that, I'm mostly here for the speaking and listening side of the language!
