For students, learning to use proper phraseology and radio terminology can be difficult.  Learning the phonetic alphabet is only part of the challenge.

I never found learning the phonetics being very hard; after sounding them off a few times and hearing them time after time, they become second nature!

The tip that helped me learn the phonetic alphabet during my private pilot lesson days was to continually convert auto license plates to the phonetic alphabet on the ride to and from the airport.  Over a short period it then became second nature, as you indicated.

NavCanada has a "flash game" that allows you to practice the phonetic alphabet.
