For what do you need a dictionary? A list or a set should suffice:

[os.mkdir(d) for d in "C Python ASM".split()]

If some of these directories could already exist, this may be safer:

for d in "C Python ASM".split():
     except OSError:

Another possibility is the following:

os.system("mkdir C Python ASM")
