Is there an easy way to learn case endings?

How do you remember all the case endings? Also, some are the same so how would you distinguish which one when translating?

I guess the best thing to do is make sentences or stories that help you remember. My friend and i have this sentence 'India Is On Sand OR Under My Indian Socks In Selfridges ( the capitals are the endings for 2nd declension). The Cambridge Latin Course website is really good as well for endings test etc!

If you're trying to figure out which one during the translation, you just need to put in all the possible meanings and choose the one that fits in the context. 

Also, there are some good (bit cheesy) songs that are on youtube.. they're quite useful to remember the case endings

Just type latin case ending song into youtube. Hope this helps!
