How to study?
I wish to begin on studying the Halacha; Shulhan Aruch, Mishne Torah as well as midrash halacha.
I have known there is a daily Halacha study as Eli Mansour presents in a website. It seems to be studied by topics and subjects.

So studying the Halachot, are they not studied by relalting them to the Shulhan Aruch or at least to Mishne Torah or Mishna Berurah?

I am lost on begining to study the Halachot because I do not know where are they related.

Kitzur Shulchan Aruch es lo que necesitas

Gracias por el consejo, pero todavía tengo la duda, ŋcómo se estudia? : )

in the beginning just the kitzur shulchan aruch .read it few times, Spanish, English
Then when you become a Jew, you know the mitzvot, and then you learn everything in depht

If you want to get a bit more flavor than just kitzur, I would suggest trying to learn Chumash and seeing how the various mitzvot are actually written in the Torah. Or, try learning gemarah (Artscroll is fabulous and possibly have a volume or two in Spanish now). But chossidnistar is correct that the most important thing at this point is the Kitzur. The rest will come with time.

If I am not wrong the daily Halacha is studied encompasing "Mishne Torah" or "Mishna Berurah" as well the Shulhan Aruch with a diversity of responsas, like Ovadia Yosef and so on; is it right?.

I know for my conversion process to get a Shulhan Aruch at this point is very important because of its several rules/Laws Halachot- are part of being aware about on what means to live as jew.
It is not only to apply but to have in mind what The Sages and Rabbis say on each Halacha and, I think the Yalkut Yosef has commentaries and compare with Askenazies that is why I am interested.

My Tīnach is from Arstcroll, the student edition, and I like very much how it is translated and explained than, comparing with spanish translation.
Also I have got a Talmud in english and it is very nice to study and looking for the Halachot and Mishnayots -but still a bit lost-

Thank you both

You are right... I have been comparing and a Kitzur seems easier to the begining and good to study a daily halacha. I am a bit pig-headed -cabezota-.

Thanks a lot
