      Why is it to say “your turn” in Spanish one says “te toca” instead of saying “tu toca”?

      Good question, that’s because the verb tocar literally means ‘to be someone’s turn’ with the underlying meaning of  tocar ‘to touch’  and you can’t automatically turn that into the noun ‘turn’.  Instead you would have to use the noun ‘turno’.

      So you have two options, both fine; ‘tu turno’ or ‘te toca’.

      I hope that helps 🙂
