How to memorize and use german declination?

I want to ask how do you german students practice and learn german declinations. We need to get used to the german decliation. But how would we do it in our countries? That look completly impracticable to grammaticaly analise all the german cases and remember all the adjectives, nouns and artciles declinations before to speak a single sentence in german. I can't even write it correctly on Duolingo later of an grammatical analisys. So what i want to know is: "How did you learn german declinations and how did you practiced it to ge the notion of how to use it in conversation"?

The way I do it is to picture the endings table in my head. http://german.about.com/library/weekly/aa030298.htm is burnt in to my mind so I can picture it when speaking. Eventually, words you frequently use come naturally, but whenever you know the gender of a word and can picture the table of endings you know which form to use.
