Just to set an example, the most efficient way for danger identification skills training is the "driving with comments on the general usage roads". The trainer demonstrates driving with comments and then sets the task for students to define and name the objects they consider dangerous.
During practical classes the trainer adds students comments, makes clarifying questions, helping to understand hidden dangers, which had never been seen before.
