I assume you have a way of conducting the speaking exam with someone, even if you're doing this alone?

For the culture topic you need to choose 2 of those areas (e.g. history, work of a director, geographical area) and study them. You don't have to study an excessive amount but you need to study enough so that you could write at least 250 words about them in a response to an exam question on them.

A good way to get an indication of what you need to know would be to look at some of the past paper questions on AQA website, as well as their example answers and mark schemes. The AQA books also have a few pages about the culture topic and how to answer them.

The essay is not meant to be narrative, you're meant to mention certain things (like a narrative) and then delve into reasoning/evaluation of those things from a personal viewpoint.

As for the speaking, you will have 5 minutes per cultural topic. The teacher will ask you various things about the topic and once again you have to respond giving an answer usually with personal evaluation, e.g. for the film director you might be asked "how has a character changed over the course of the film" and yeah.
