Reply to "During"

Hello, elsayedelsaidy, and welcome to the Grammar Exchange.

I agree with your colleagues. This is what the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English says:

► Don’t say ‘during doing something’ or ‘during someone does something’. Use 'while'They chatted while waiting for the train (NOT during waiting for the train). | He stole her money while she slept (NOT during she slept).
