Welcome to Visual Vocabulary, the new animated series from EnglishAnyone.com that helps you learn useful English expressions the same way native speakers do so you can master them quickly, AND start using them confidently in your conversations today!

Today’s expression is “a method to the madness.” This is a very common idiom meaning that though something my look chaotic or disorganized, it has an underlying structure or reason for being.

Imagine walking into a science lab with lots of instruments. You see a scientist running from table to table carrying different chemicals, and performing different experiments.

His lab may look like “madness,” or crazy disorganization, but there’s a clear purpose behind what he’s doing that makes sense to him.

Like the scientist’s lab, any situation that has underlying structure despite looking problematic can be described as having a “method to its madness.”

B: There’s a method to my madness. I’m just reorganizing my kitchen.

A: The boss must be crazy! He’s going to sell the most profitable division of the company!?
B: Don’t worry! There’s a method to his madness.

A: The hockey coach’s plays look very confusing.
B: But he always wins! There must be a method to his madness.
