Bale

I often hear people in Spain utter a word that sounds like "bale", and from what I can tell, it means something like "ok" or "very well". However, I can't figure out how it is spelled and therefore I wasn't able to look up its exact meaning. Any help please?

    It is vale. It shows approval to something previously said by other.
    Sometimes is just used as an expression, i.e.

    1 "Vámonos que se hace tarde"
    2 "Vale, sólo termino mi tarea y nos vamos"

    TRANSLATION

    1 "We should leave now, it's late"
    2 "OK, just let me finish my homework and then we will leave".
