Learning how to deal blackjack is not that difficult but you do need to remember very specific rules when you deal. Begin to deal with the player on your left. Give them a card that is face up. Deal to the next person on the right and continue around the table until you get a card. Your card goes face down. Deal one more round of cards in the same manner so each player has two cards. Yours are both face down, one on top of the other. Put the cards down and flip your bottom card over to reveal the face.
If your bottom card shows an ace when you flip it, ask if anyone would like insurance. The insurance bet is half the amount of the original bet. If the dealer has a blackjack, it pays two to one and protects the bet. Peak underneath and if it's a blackjack pay off the insurance bets first, then collect the losing wagers of the players. If a player has a blackjack you have an ace, then you need to ask the player if they want even money. This means that they bought insurance, pushed and get the payment of 1 to 1 for their blackjack instead of 3 to 1 like normal.
If your card is a face card you also need to peak at the other card that is turned over. If you have a blackjack, all players lose, except someone with a blackjack. They push which means they don't win but they don't lose their wager.
The players now see your cards and decide whether they want to take a hit or pass. An ace can count as one or ten. You start again to your left and if the player waves an open hand over the cards or says pass, you move to the next person. If the player taps the table, points to the table or says, "Hit me" you give them a card.
